Benefits of working with a DBE Certified Business

When you look around, chances are that you are seeing growth and development. This has led to a highly competitive construction industry. Since so many businesses are on the market, standing out among the masses can be hard.

The good news is that gaining recognition as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, or DBE, can help. Reliant Construction is a DBE-certified company. In this article, we’ll explain more about DBE certification and how it benefits Reliant Construction.

What Is DBE Certification?

DBE certification is a federal designation for small businesses that are owned and controlled by individuals who are socially and/or economically disadvantaged. The program is administered by the United States Department of Transportation. The purpose of this program is to level the playing field for minority and female-owned businesses, enabling them to compete for transportation projects that are backed by the federal government.

In order to qualify for DBE certification, several criteria must be met:

  • Ownership: At least 51% of the business should be owned by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged, such as minorities, females, and others who face discrimination.
  • Control: The day-to-day operations and management of the business must be controlled by the disadvantaged owners.
  • Size: The business must meet the size standards set forth by the Small Business Administration, or SBA.
  • Personal Net Worth: The personal net worth of the disadvantaged owners, excluding primary residence and the business itself, must be below a specified threshold.

What are the Benefits of DBE Certification?

DBE Certification opens up a wide variety of opportunities for small construction businesses such as Reliant Construction, including:

  • Access to Contracts: Typically, federal and state contracts require a certain percentage of DBE participation. This provides DBE-certified companies with an advantage when bidding on projects, increasing their chances of securing lucrative contracts.
  • Networking Opportunities: DBE Certification offers access to a network of other certified businesses and federal agencies. This can help facilitate partnerships, joint ventures, and mentorship opportunities that can help the business grow.
  • Business Development Resources: DBE Certification provides access to a variety of support services, including financial resources, training, and technical assistance. These services can be used to improve business operations and increase competitiveness.
  • Enhanced Reputation: DBE Certification can improve a company’s reputation, demonstrating a commitment to inclusion and diversity. This attracts new clients and partners who value these principles.
