All ADOT contracting groups and subrecipients of FHWA funds must have their projects assessed for a DBE goal prior to advertising a contract by submitting a DBE Goal Worksheet to the Business Engagement and Compliance Office (BECO). DBE participation is achieved through race-neutral and race-conscious means. All federal aid projects are assessed for DBE opportunity. Where DBE availability exists, race-conscious goals will be set.
ADOT personnel can now use BECO's new DBE Contract Goal Setting Application to submit new DBE Goal Assessments to BECO. Access the DBE Contract Goal Setting Application. The system, which requires Internet Explorer 11, is an online version of the DBE Goal Worksheet and allows ADOT project managers to work on multiple goals and submit them over time. As Goal Assessments are complete, the system will automatically email users with the assessed goal. Project managers should have access already, but if not, users may request access by emailing DBEContractGoals@azdot.gov. Allow one day for access to be provided.
DBE Goal Setting Excel worksheets are still in use by ADOT subrecipients, but only for a limited time. By November 2015, ADOT's subrecipients will also be using the new system.
Worksheets are updated regularly based upon feedback from ADOT staff and subrecipients, so before starting a new request, please download the latest version below and follow the instructions for completion and submission:
- Download the version relevant to your project.
- Fill in the cover page with project summary information (all fields are required).
- Complete the applicable work category worksheet on the second tab.
- Email the completed file along with the project scope to DBEContractGoals@azdot.gov.
- You will receive a receipt confirmation within one to two business days. BECO will provide the project goal assessment within 10 business days of receiving both the scope and goal assessment forms.

Procurement / Goods and Services categories have been incorporated into the Professional Services and Construction worksheets.
Any incomplete or out-of-date forms will be returned to the sender for further input and may delay the calculation of the DBE goal for your project. Failure to provide a scope of work may also delay your goal assessment. Note: It is not necessary to submit DBE goal requests for projects that are NOT funded via the U.S. Department of Transportation and/or one of its administrations (FHWA, FTA, FAA, etc.); however, receiving even $1 of federal funds means the contract is federal and must be assessed for a goal.
Please contact the BECO office by calling 602.712.7761 with questions regarding the applicability of DBE requirements.
