2020-2022 Goal Methodology
for Federal Highway and Federal Transit DBE Contracts
The Ohio Department of Transportation is in the process of developing its Federal Fiscal Year 2020 through 2022 Triennial DBE Goals, which are required by the Code of Federal Regulation 49, Part 26. Through this process, ODOT is establishing two separate DBE goal methodologies – one for contracts funded by Federal Highway and one for Federal Transit. This page has been established to share details of these methodologies.
ODOT hosted a series of public meetings around the state to invite comments on the methodologies from small and disadvantaged businesses and other business enterprises, public agencies, elected officials, and interested individuals. In June 2019 (click here for details), comments were accepted at these meetings and through this web page. ODOT has incorporated comments in the final goal methodologies, and has submitted the respective plans to the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration on August 1, 2019. Once approved, these goals will go into effect beginning October 1, 2019.
