Update DBE Certification

Effective immediately, TxDOT will handle firms that work only in the highway construction area. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) now requires all Texas certification applications to be processed by The Texas Department of Transportation Office of Civil Rights, Austin, Texas.

If this is what the firm is stating, then TxDOT should handle per the MOA. If they state they want to work on projects with FAA and FTA then they stay with the TUCP Certifying agency.

If you have any questions regarding this information and any other DBE Program changes, contact Martha Arnold, TXDOT OCR at 512-486-5534.
