Once I'm certified, how do other firms find me?
Pace participates in the Illinois Unified Certification Program (IL UCP) with the City of Chicago, CTA, Metra and IDOT, and the IL UCP maintains an Illinois Unified Certification Directory (Directory).
Once certified, your firm's name, address, contact information, work categories and work location preferences will appear in the Directory. This Directory is used by Pace's prime contractors, as well as other agencies and individuals, to provide a reference source of DBE firms to assist bidders/proposers in meeting DBE contract goals. It is the responsibility of the DBE to ensure the information in the UCP remains accurate. Changes to contact information must be sent to the certifying agency on firm letterhead with any changes that occur.
The Directory is available here.
