TRANSPORTATION AND PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, TRANSIT DIVISION
DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE) GOAL
FY 2017 ‐ FY 2019
In keeping with the requirements of 49 C.F.R. Part 26 (Participation by Disadvantaged Business
Enterprises in U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Programs), an overall Disadvantaged Business
Enterprise (DBE) goal has been developed for DBE participation in DOT‐assisted contracting by the
City of Santa Rosa Transit Division during Fiscal Year 2017 through Fiscal Year 2019. The City of
Santa Rosa Transit Division receives funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) of U.S.
Department of Transportation. The City of Santa Rosa Transit Division’s overall DBE goal for
2017‐2019 is 7.24% of the federal financial assistance we will expend in FTA‐assisted contracts,
exclusive of FTA funds to be used for the purchase of transit vehicles.
This goal identifies the relative availability of DBEs based on evidence of ready, willing, and
able DBEs in relationship to all comparable businesses which are known to be available to compete
in the Transit Division’s FTA‐assisted contracts. The overall DBE goal reflects staff’s
determination of the level of DBE participation which would be expected absent the effects of
discrimination. A discussion of the methodology for developing the goal can be found in the
