LPA/Subrecipient Compliance

DBE Contract Compliance

The ADOT Business Engagement and Compliance Office (BECO) works with agencies statewide to ensure compliance with federal and state laws and regulations related to managing federally funded projects. Some of the beneficiaries of federal funds are subrecipients and local public agencies (LPAs), which are defined as follows:

  • LPA: "any city, county, township, municipality, or other political subdivision that may be empowered to cooperate with the State transportation department in highway matters" (23 CFR 635.102).
  • Subrecipient: "any legal entity to which a sub-award of federal financial assistance is made and which is accountable to the recipient for the use of the funds provided" (49 CFR 19.2).

LPAs and subrecipients must comply with Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE), Equal Employment Opportunity and On-the-Job Training federal regulations as a condition of award and to be eligible for federal reimbursement.
