TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 481: Current Practices to Set and Monitor DBE Goals on Design-Build Projects and Other Alternative Project Delivery Methods synthesizes current practices and challenges that state departments of transportation (DOTs) face as they set and monitor the Federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program goals on design-build and other alternative delivery projects. This study focuses on key issues associated with DBE contract goals, including how requirements are established, how submissions are evaluated, how program compliance is monitored through the contracts, and what mechanisms are available to state DOTs for enforcement.
