Jackson Area Transportation Authority Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Goal

JATA’s stated goal regarding DBE participation is 1.94%. This has been established pursuant to 49 CFR § 26.45(c)(4) wherein JATA utilized an average of other DOT recipient goals within the immediate market area. JATA then confirmed the number of certified and eligible to work DBEs capable of performing projects which JATA will be completing over the next three (3) fiscal years.
  • To ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT - assisted contracts;
  • To create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-assisted contracts;
  • To ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law;
  • To ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs;
  • To help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT assisted contracts;
  • To assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE Program.
