DBE/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.

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.

TJPA accepts certifications from the following programs in its SBE Program:

Trade Subcontractors, on construction services packages, will be required to have second-tier subcontractors in order to meet Small Business Enterprise (SBE) utilization goals. The TJPA Construction Services SBE Team is providing an innovative approach to identifying contractors interested in being lower-tier subcontractors on construction packages by asking interested contractors to fill out and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) Form; please follow this link:  TJPA EOI Form

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. Read the latest BOC Newsletter.
