The SBE Certification Program will be administered by ODOT in a manner similar to the DBE Certification Program, but without the consideration of the gender and/or ethnicity of the firm’s owners. All SBE firms must be certified prior to submitting a bid.
STEP 1: Download and complete, sign, and have notarized the Personal Net Worth Statement. (Note: This specific form must be used. This is the same form as is used for DBE/ACDBE certification, which is why the form's title includes DBE and ACDBE. Although the form does not specifically mention SBE certification, the personal net worth information required for SBE certification is the same as for DBE/ACDBE certification.)
STEP 2: Fully complete and submit the SBE Certification application. (Attach the notarized Personal Net Worth Statement from step 1 where specified.)
STEP 3: If ODOT requires you to submit any additional information or documents, submit them using the SBE Certification Application Additional Documents form.
STEP 4: Be sure to save a copy of everything you submitted for your files.
After you submit your application and supporting documents, ODOT will be in contact with you regarding next steps.
