DBE Policy Statement
Richland County Transit (RCT) has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26. RCT has received Federal financial assistance from the Department of Transportation, and as a condition of receiving this assistance, the RCT has signed an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26. It is the policy of RCT to ensure that DBEs as defined in part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT- assisted contracts. It is also our policy to: 1. Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT - transit assisted contracts; 2. Create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT- transit assisted contracts; 3. Ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law; 4. Ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs; 5. Help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT assisted contracts; 6. Promote the use of DBEs in all types of federally assisted contracts and procurement activities; and 7. Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE Program. RCT has disseminated this policy statement to the Richland County Transit Board and all of the components of our organization. We have distributed this statement to DBE and non-DBE business communities that perform work for us on DOT-assisted contracts. For more information, please contact the DBE Liaison Officer at:
