Business Registration and Certification

Vendor Registration

AZ UTRACS Registration is a business registration required for all firms who wish to work on federally funded transportation projects in Arizona, including Prime Contractors and Prime Consultants, Subcontractors, Subconsultants, Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), and Small Business Concerns (SBCs).

This registration satisfies a federal requirement (49 CFR Part 26.11(c)) for ADOT to maintain a bidder’s list to help the agency calculate its overall triennial DBE for FHWA, FTA and FAA funded contracts, as well calculate individual contract goals for FHWA funded contracts.

Creating an AZ UTRACS registration is a quick and easy process and the registration is valid for three years, at no cost to your firm, to advertise your firm’s capabilities to the business community and where your firm is willing to do work.  By completing the registration, your firm will be added to the AZ UTRACS Firm (DBE) Search Directory, so other firms can find your firm to partner together.  This comprehensive search engine, lets firms search by work category, counties a firm is willing to work, and has a specialized search for DBEs, showing exactly what work they can do for DBE credit.
