Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program
Documents and Studies
In 2013, Pace commissioned a Disparity Study to determine the availability
of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises ("DBEs") in its market area and
evaluate its DBE program.
The objective was to meet the requirements of strict constitutional scrutiny
applicable to DBE programs and Pace′s obligations as a recipient of Federal
Transit Administration under 49 C.F.R. Part 26. Purchase orders and contract data
was analyzed for calendar years 2008 through 2014.
