The IL UCP DBE Directory (IL UCP)
The IL UCP DBE Directory identifies the certified DBE firms for the purpose
of providing a reference source to assist bidders in meeting any DBE participation
requirements. Please be advised that DBE certification does not guarantee that
a firm will be approved to participate toward a contract's DBE goal.
For work performed by a DBE firm to count toward the goal, the firm must
perform a "commercially useful function". A DBE firm performs a commercially
useful function when it is responsible for execution of a distinct element of
the work and carries out its responsibilities by actually performing (with its
own workforce), managing, and supervising the work involved.
