Proposed DBE Goal and Methodology
It is the policy of the Johnson City Transit System (JCT) to provide Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) maximum opportunity to participate in the performance of contracts financed in whole or part with federal funds, and not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, or national origin in the award of performance of contracts, in compliance with 49 CFR Part 26, as amended and updated. Johnson City Transit System’s proposed overall goal for the three fiscal-year period of FFYs 2017-19 is 2% for DBE participation in the performance of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) assisted contracts (exclusive of Federal Transit Administration funds used to purchase transit vehicles). JCT’s proposed DBE goal was prepared in accordance with 49 CFR Part 26, as amended and updated.
JCT’s proposed goal and its rationale will be available for inspection for 30 days from the date of this notice, from 8 a.m. though 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Johnson City Transit System. The proposed goal may also be viewed on the Civil Rights page of the Johnson City Transit website or by clicking here. JCT and/or DOT will accept comments on the JCT FY 2015-17 DBE goal for 45 days from the date of this notice.
