Are you a minority or woman owner of a trucking company? Did you know getting certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) can significantly increase your opportunities for work on CDOT and other City and County construction projects? General contractors and other DBE trucking firms often have goals to subcontract a percentage of work to DBE certified truckers. This webinar will walk you through what is required and how to apply. We'll answer your questions (English and Spanish) and provide a free follow up application review before you submit.

What You'll Learn:

  • Whether your trucking company is eligible for DBE certification
  • Why you should get DBE certified
  • How to complete the DBE application
  • What documents are required from your business and the owners
  • Where to find DBE contracting opportunities
  • DBE rules for subcontracting
