For Federal Fiscal Years 2018-2020, MARTA established a DBE program goal of 25%; 21% race conscious; and 4% race neutral. MARTA intends to award at least 25% of its total DOT-assisted contracts with qualified DBE firms through race conscious and race neutral means.
Notice of Proposed FFY 2021-2023 DBE Goal
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26, hereby announces its Federal Fiscal Year 2021-2023 goal of 23% for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation on contracts assisted by
the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The MARTA DBE goal is based on demonstrable evidence of the availability of ready, willing and able DBEs relative to all businesses that are ready, willing and able to participate on FTA-assisted contracts. The DBE goal reflects the level of DBE participation
that would be expected on transit contracts absent of the effects of discrimination.
The proposed DBE goal and its methodology will be reviewed at a Small Business Community and Stakeholder
held virtually July 14, 2020 at 10:00 AM. Any questions or comments regarding the proposed DBE goal should be directed to Ms. Paula Nash, Executive Director, Diversity & Inclusion via phone at (404) 848-4639 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
