SMALL & DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISES

HART is committed to opportunities for small, minority and woman-owned businesses to participate in HART contracts.

 DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE) PROGRAM

As a recipient of USDOT funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), HART administers a DBE Program, in accordance with 49 CFR Part 26, to ensure nondiscrimination in the award of USDOT-assisted contracts and create a level playing field on which certified DBEs can compete for those contracts.  While the DBE program includes fostering small business participation, only DBEs certified by the Florida Unified Certification Program are eligible to participate as DBEs. Tampa International Airport is the local agency that certifies DBEs.

HART has established a goal of 10.8% DBE participation on USDOT funded projects for FY14, FY15, and FY16.
