  • ADOT's good faith efforts to meet overall DBE participation goals
  • Compliance with all applicable federal requirements

Announcements and Updates


BECO has moved!
The BECO unit moved to 1801 W. Jefferson St. Ste. 101. The new location features a new Business Center and a large conference room. Our phone numbers remain the same.

ADOT launches a new AZ UTRACS Transportation Business Portal.
To make the AZ UTRACS Registration process easier and to provide a dual SBC Registration in one easy form, ADOT has introduced the new AZ UTRACS web portal.  This site is a one-stop portal to enable firms to complete an AZ UTRACS Registration, submit Bidders or Proposers Lists when bidding on projects, access the ADOT DBE System for Certification and Contract Payment Reporting, and offers a new and improved Firm (DBE) Search Directory.    

Registrations in the old AZ UTRACS System were automatically transferred and all DBEs were automatically AZ UTRACS registered.  Visit AZ UTRACS and contact AZUTRACS-Support@azdot.gov for more information.
