Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

PSRC has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). The purpose of this program is to ensure that DBEs have an equal opportunity to participate in USDOT-assisted contracts. PSRC has established an overall goal of 5.53%, and will use 100% race-neutral means of obtaining DBE participation.

PSRC accepts comments on the program and rationale. Comments may be sent by email or mail.

Request for Debriefing Conference and Protest Procedure

Unsuccessful proposers have the opportunity to request a debriefing conference. The request must be made within three days of receipt of the written notification indicating that their proposal was not selected.

Discussions will be informal and limited to a critique of the requesting consultant’s proposal. This feedback will assist the proposer in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of their proposal. PSRC representatives will explain the scoring of a consultant’s proposal. Debriefings may be conducted in person or by telephone and may be limited to a specific period of time.

PSRC will handle and resolve disputes relating to procurements and will disclose information regarding the protest to the awarding agency. A protester must exhaust all administrative remedies with PSRC before pursuing a protest with the Federal granting agency. Reviews of protests by the Federal granting agency will be limited to:

  • Violations of Federal law or regulations and the standards of this section (violations of State or local law will be under the jurisdiction of State or local authorities) and
  • Violations of PSRC’s protest procedures for failure to review a complaint or protest. Protests received by the Federal granting agency other than those specified above will be referred to PSRC.
