DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE)
The Morongo Basin Transit Authority is a subrecipient of federal funds through
Caltrans Department of Mass Transportation (DMT).
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) requires administering agencies, such as
DMT, to ensure that subrecipients of Section 5310, 5311, 5316, and 5317 funds are in
compliance with the U. S. Department of Transportation, Title 49 Code of Federal
Regulation Part 26 (Part 26). Part 26 sets forth requirements for participation by
disadvantaged business enterprises (DBE) in federal transit funding programs.
Subrecipients with contracting opportunities must submit a Disadvantaged Business
Enterprise Race-Neutral Implementation Agreement for Federal Transit
Administration Subrecipients (Implementation Agreement). All DBE Race-Neutral
Implementation Agreements will be submitted to Division of Mass Transportation.
