DBE/ACDBE Certification Roadmap
The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certification program is a Federal program. The purpose is to increase the participation of certified DBEs in projects funded by the US Department of Transportation and other federal sectors. Projects typically include heavy construction, such as building and designing roads, bridges, railroads, ports, and airports.
The Program is governed by the U.S. Federal Regulations in 49 CFR Parts 26 and 23.
The Virginia Unified Certification Program includes two certifying agencies:
The Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (DSBSD)
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA)
There is no need to submit an application to both agencies. Federal DBE certification by either agency is fully accepted throughout Virginia.
Please start by answering no more than four multiple choice questions, and we will use your responses to direct you to the DBE page with the DBE/ACDBE information relevant to your specific and current needs and circumstances:
