DBE and Workforce Documents

The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program is a federal program for increasing the participation of women- and minority-owned businesses in the award of federally assisted contracts. The Metropolitan Council's Office of Equal Opportunity established DBE goals for the Central Corridor Green Line project based on local availability and historic utilization of DBEs for each major contract. The goals for professional service contracts ranged from 15-17%; the goal for major construction contracts was 15%. More information is available in the documents below:
