A goal-oriented system has been established to promote disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) participation by providing construction services, professional services, supplies, and/or equipment on State Revolving Fund Loan-funded water and wastewater projects.
During the pre-bid and post-bid phases of the project, it is the Loan Recipient's responsibility to ensure, document, and certify that Bidders make a good faith effort to solicit for sub-contractor participation by DBE subcontractors, service professionals, suppliers, and/or equipment vendors on all SRF-funded projects.
