Business Engagement and Compliance

Overall DBE Goals

The Business Engagement and Compliance Office (BECO) establishes and oversees the implementation of the DBE Program, as required, for each federal agency FHWA, FTA and FAA. According to ADOT’s DBE Program Plan, specific to each funding agency, a DBE goal may or may not be established on a federally funded project. All federally funded projects shall be evaluated for a DBE goal.  These DBE Goals are established based on the results of a DBE Disparity Study that ADOT conducts every five (5) years.  ADOT also conducts an Availability Study every 3 years and can recommend changes to the DBE goal in between the Disparity Study timeframes as appropriate based on the Availability Study results.  

The following goals have been approved for ADOT by the indicated USDOT Funding Agency:
