DBE Task Force Meetings
DBE task forces comprised of DBEs, prime consultants and contractors, ADOT staff, and other industry leaders meet regularly to receive project briefings, to learn about what's happening in the DBE program and construction industry, and to work on finding solutions to issues facing DBEs and other small businesses.
These Task Forces serve as a catalyst for business development by identifying barriers to entry for construction and professional services DBE firms. This task force will work with ADOT and transportation industry leadership to find solutions to barriers to entry and serve as a voice for the Arizona DBE community. Members of this task force identify barriers to entry for the DBE community, work cooperatively to identify solutions to barriers to entry, disseminate information regarding solutions to the larger Arizona DBE community, and help foster an environment that contributes to the Arizona economy through utilization of women- and minority-owned businesses on ADOT projects.
