It is the policy of the U.S. Department of Transportation that Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), as defined in 49 CFR Part 26, are encouraged to participate in the performance of contracts financed in whole or in part with federal funds. As a condition of federal grant assistance, SacRT has adopted a DBE program for SacRT's federally-funded contracts.

To further SacRT’s DBE Policy, SacRT has established a goal of 3% participation by DBEs for this Contract. A Bidder that fails to achieve the DBE goal and that fails to demonstrate sufficient good-faith efforts to meet such goal will be deemed “non-responsive” and therefore ineligible for award of the Contract. Bidder must complete and submit the following forms for all solicitations with an established goal:

  • DBE Commitments Form (DBE Form 1a) (49 CFR Section 26.55)

  • Confirmation by DBE (DBE Form 2) or copy of DBE’s quote or Form

  • DBE Commercially Useful Function Certification Form (DBE Form 3)

See Attachment 6 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program Contract Provisions for additional information.

SacRT reserves the right, as its interests may require, to reject all bids, to waive any informality or minor irregularities in bids, and to accept or reject any items of the bid.

This is a public works project for which state and federal general prevailing wages apply. Copies of applicable general prevailing wage rates is included in the bid document. Payment and Performance bonds will be required in the amounts set forth in the specifications.
