DBE/SBE Programs

TJPA became a grantee of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in 2006. Recipients of funding from FTA must establish a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program under federal regulations to ensure that DBEs have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in contracts. TJPA established its DBE Program in 2006. Our program is race-neutral, meaning that we do not place binding DBE goals on contracts. However, TJPA strongly encourages DBE participation on all contracts.

In 2009, the TJPA Board adopted a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) program as well. Under the SBE Program, TJPA places enforceable SBE goals on contracts as appropriate. Meeting the goal or demonstrating good faith efforts to do so is a condition of contract award.

TJPA accepts certifications from the following programs in its SBE Program:

TJPA participates in the Business Outreach Committee (BOC), a working group of San Francisco Bay Area transit and transportation agency staff focused on outreach and assistance to DBEs and other small companies. For information on contract opportunities at the various BOC agencies, read the latest BOC Newsletter
