- 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.
