DBE Program

The OKI Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) is a federal program operating under the guidance of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The overall goal of the DBE Program is to ensure that firms owned and controlled by minorities, women and other socially and economically disadvantaged individuals have the opportunity to grow and become self-sufficient in order to compete on an equal basis with non-disadvantaged businesses. Authorization for the program is 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 26 and OKI, as a grant recipient of DOT funds, must comply with the requirements of 49 CFR 26.
