RULES FOR DBE COMPLIANCE

The following rules apply to Disadvantaged Business Enterprise participation by firms / teams:

  • Only certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprises can be counted toward the goal. Participation by certified "Minority Business Enterprises" (MBE) or certified "Women Owned Business Enterprises" (WBE) cannot be counted toward the goal. While participation by MBEs and WBEs is encouraged, MATA is governed by the U.S. Department of Transportation program which only recognizes the designation of DBE.  
     
  • DBEs must be certified in Tennessee.
     
  • MATA is a member of the Tennessee Unified Certification Program (TN UCP) and accepts Tennessee DBE certifications from the following entities:

    - Memphis Area Transit Authority
    - Tennessee Department of Transportation Unified Certification Program
    - Uniform Certification Agency (managed by the Mid-South Minority Business Council)

           A list of firms currently certified in Tennessee can be found at:

  • Certification in the State of Tennessee must be achieved by the time the proposals are due, otherwise the participation of a proposed DBE firm cannot be counted toward the goal. If a proposed DBE firm is not certified at the time the proposals are due and, as a result, the goal is not met, then the proposal will be considered "non-responsive" and rejected unless the good faith efforts have been accepted as satisfactory.
     
  • It is highly recommended that a copy of a current certification of Disadvantaged Business Enterprise issued by the Tennessee Department of Transportation or the Uniform Certification Agency be included with the offer for each DBE firm being proposed.
