Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

Supportive Services Program

DBE Task Forces

DBE task forces comprised of DBEs, prime consultants and contractors, ADOT staff, and other industry leaders meet regularly to receive project briefings, to learn about what's happening in the DBE program and construction industry, and to work on finding solutions to issues facing DBEs and other small businesses.

Check out the agenda and minutes from past meetings, and take some time once every other month or every quarterly to attend the meetings, participate on a subcommittee, increase your knowledge, share your expertise and become part of the solution!

Contact the Supportive Services staff at 602.712.7761 or 602.712.4897, or email DBESupportiveServices@azdot.gov if you would like to participate in one of the DBE task forces or subcommittees.

Professional Services Task Force

The Professional Services Task Force serves as a catalyst for business development by identifying barriers to entry for DBE professional services firms. This task force will work with ADOT and transportation industry leadership to find solutions to barriers to entry and serve as a voice for the Arizona DBE community. Members of this task force identify barriers to entry for the DBE community, work cooperatively to identify solutions to barriers to entry, disseminate information regarding solutions to the larger Arizona DBE community, and help foster an environment that contributes to the Arizona economy through utilization of women- and minority-owned businesses on ADOT projects.
