SANDAG currently proposes an FTA DBE overall goal of 6.5 percent and an FHWA overall goal of 6.6 percent for the FFYs 2013-2015 goal period.

The DBE goal would be applicable to FTA/FHWA-assisted contracts scheduled to be solicited and awarded during the period of October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2015. SANDAG currently proposes to meet 3.15 percent of its overall goal utilizing race-neutral measures in accordance with Title 49 CFR Part 26.51, and 3.35 percent of its overall goal utilizing race-conscious measures for FTA-assisted contracts. For FHWA-assisted contracts, SANDAG currently proposes to meet 3.5 percent of its overall goal utilizing race-neutral measures, and 3.1 percent of its overall goal utilizing race-conscious measures. Upon completion of the 45-day public comment period for the proposed FTA and FHWA DBE goal-setting methodology, SANDAG staff will present all comments to the Board of Directors and request final approval of the DBE Overall Goals and Methodology.
