There are a variety of benefits to being certified as a DBE.

Contract Goals: CDOT sets a contract goal for DBE participation on contracts that include U.S. DOT assistance. The contract goal can be found in the Project Special Provision DBE Worksheet. In order to be awarded a contract, a prime  must show it has committed to DBE participation sufficient to meet the contract goal or has otherwise made good faith efforts to do so. Bidders must submit a Bidders List (Form 1413) and Anticipated DBE Participation Plan (Form 1414) with their proposal. Failure to submit these forms results in rejection of the proposal.

Note: Form 1414 is only required if the goal on the project is greater than zero.
