Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Programs
TJPA became a grantee of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in 2006. Recipients of funding from FTA must establish a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program under federal regulations to ensure that DBEs have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in contracts. TJPA established its DBE Program in 2006. Our program is race-neutral, meaning that we do not place binding DBE goals on contracts. However, TJPA strongly encourages DBE participation on all contracts.
Notice of Proposed Overall DBE Goal for Federal Fiscal Years 2022/2023 through 2024/2025
On June 9, 2022, the TJPA Board of Directors adopted a draft Anticipated DBE Participation Level of 17% for FTA-assisted contracts spanning over the next three federal fiscal years beginning October 1, 2022, through September 30, 2025. Stakeholders may view the TJPA’s DBE Goal Setting Methodology and provide comments by July 11, 2022.
- Anticipated DBE Participation Level Methodology for FFY 2022/2023 through FFY 2024/2025
- TJPA Board Resolution approving the draft Anticipated Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Participation Level (ADPL) for federal fiscal years 2022-23 through 2024-25.
For comments, please send an email no later than July 11, 2022 to email@example.com, with subject line “DBE Goal Comment.”
In 2009, the TJPA Board adopted a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) program as well. Under the SBE Program, TJPA places enforceable SBE goals on contracts as appropriate. Meeting the goal or demonstrating good faith efforts to do so is a condition of contract award.

- State of California Department of General Services (DGS), Procurement Division, Office of Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Services (OSDS)
- City and County of San Francisco Local/Minority/Woman-Owned Business Enterprise as certified by the Contract Monitoring Division (CMD) of the Office of the City Administrator

TJPA participates in the Business Outreach Committee (BOC), a working group of San Francisco Bay Area transit and transportation agency staff focused on outreach and assistance to DBEs and other small companies.
