You're DBE Certified - Now What?
Congratulations! You gathered stacks of company documents, filled out numerous application pages, nailed the site visit interview, and got certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE). Now what? Certification is just the beginning of your contracting journey. Getting DBE certified is certainly a big feather in your cap and it can provide you with more contracts, bigger payouts, and repeat work on USDOT funding-assisted contracts. But, it's not a guarantee. You still have to make it work for you.
What You'll Learn:
- Get registered where it counts
- Develop your unique selling proposition
- Create a compelling Capabilities Statement
- Find prime contractors and state/local agency contacts with DBE goals
- Market your certification to the people who care
- Find contracting opportunities for DBE subcontractors
- Use the DBE Directory to build your capacity
- Maximize your certification work codes
DBE firms who were recently certified or those who have been certified for awhile but have not received many contracts as a result.
