The Town of Chapel Hill, herein after referred to as Town, has prepared a document to describe the methodology used to establish the overall Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal for its Federal Transit Administration (FTA) financially-assisted transit projects mandated by code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 49 Part 26, with regards to Chapel Hill Transit, herein Transit.
When establishing this goal, Transit relied upon and adhered to guidance provided by the regulations. 49 CFR, Part 26, §26.45 requires a two-step process for setting the overall DBE goal, which should reflect the expected level of DBE participation in federally assisted Transit contracts in absence of discrimination.
Transit proposes to establish its DBE overall goal for Federal Fiscal years 2017-2019 at 2%, with the entire amount projected to be met through race-neutral measures.
