Changes to DBE Annual Update and Five-Year Certification Review Procedures

The due dates for DBE Annual Updates for certified DBE firms has been changed to April 1 or Oct. 1 of each year.

  • DBE firms with names ending in A-J must submit Annual Update by April 1, 2014.
  • DBE firms with names ending in K-Z must submit Annual Update by Oct. 1, 2014.

Review a list of the DBE firms that must submit an Annual Update form: April and October.

Please note that all updates must be completed online.

Five-Year DBE Certification Review

Once every five years, each DBE firm must undergo a Certification Review, which is similar to an Annual Update. The only differences for the firm are that an on-site review will be conducted at the firm's office and the Certification Review will be more detailed than an Annual Update.
