A Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) is a business that functions with a minimum of 51% of the ownership and daily operation, management and overall control is held by minority groups or persons determined by the Small Business Administration to be economically and socially disadvantaged. Citizens presumed to be disadvantaged are: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian-Pacific Americans, Native Americans, and women.
WLRT’s Office of Public Involvement provides information (bid opportunity listing) on upcoming contracts and information on prime contractor/consultants with whom potential subcontracts and/or joint venture arrangements can be made. Given the economic climate in the Metropolitan Detroit Area, the proposed DBE participation is 30%.
