Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

The Disadvantaged Business Empowerment Program at the CARTS District is a cornerstone of our commitment to promoting equal opportunities in procurement. Designed to ensure a level playing field, this initiative is dedicated to providing Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) with fair and equitable access to participate in various procurement opportunities with CARTS.

As part of this program, CARTS will meticulously create and maintain a comprehensive bidders list. This list will encompass detailed information about both DBE and non-DBE firms that actively bid or quote for contracts with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA). By compiling this information, we aim to enhance transparency, foster healthy competition, and ultimately promote a diverse and inclusive business environment.

This commitment reflects our dedication to supporting the growth and development of DBEs, acknowledging their valuable contributions to the overall success of our projects. Through the Disadvantaged Business Empowerment Program, we strive to create a more inclusive and robust procurement landscape, driving positive change in our community and beyond.
