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.
