SAGINAW TRANSIT AUTHORITY REGIONAL SERVICES

Fiscal Year 2018 – 2020 Overall Goal

For the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

 

Pursuant to the U.S. Department of Transportation Regulation at 49 CFR part 26.45 titled, “Participation by Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in Department of Transportation Financial Assistance Programs,” the Saginaw Transit Authority Regional Services (STARS) announces its overall goal for DBE Program for Fiscal Years (FY) 2018-2020.

 

STARS proposes the adoption of an overall DBE goal of 9.17 percent for FY 2018-2020.  The authority projects that the recommended overall DBE goal of 9.17 percent for FY 2018-2020 will be met through race-neutral (90 percent) and race-conscious (10 percent) means.  Race-neutral participation occurs when contractors use a DBE firm on a project with no DBE participation requirement.  Race-conscious projects have a DBE percentage requirement.

 

This proposed 9.17 percent goal will be reviewed by the STARS Board of Directors at its January 22, 2018 meeting to be held at 12:00pm at:

Saginaw Transit Authority Regional Services

615 Johnson Street

Saginaw, MI  48607

 

STARS will again seek public comment on this goal in 2019 and 2020.  Comments or requests for information regarding how this goal was established may be submitted until noon on January 22, 2018 to:
