Download the ATA’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Policy statement.
To be certified as a bona fide Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) your firm must meet the criteria established by the Department of Transportation under 49 CFR Part 26 established March 1, 1999. Key considerations include, but are not limited to:
Note: If you firm has a current Letter of Certificate of Compliance issued by another governmental agency that has reviewed and certified your firm as a DBE in accordance with 49 CFR Part 26, you may submit it as part of the certification process with KCATA.
Pursuant to 49 CFR Part 26.81, the KCATA participates in Missouri’s Unified Certification Program through the Missouri Regional Certification Committee (MRCC). A firm that is certified through a partner agency will also be considered “certified” through the MRCC. Certified firms will be included in the MRCC DBE Directory, which is available to interested parties. You may access the MRCC DBE Directory at the Missouri Department of Transportation website.
