The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission is committed to providing opportunities for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) to compete for work. DBEs are certified by the Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program (PAUCP) and the New Jersey Unified Certification Program (NJUCP) in accordance with 49 CFR Part 26. Any party that enters into an agreement with DVRPC is encouraged to involve Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in the required work and to submit documentation of any such involvement in the proposal narrative and budget.
Any party that enters into an agreement with DVRPC shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or sex in the award and performance of any agreement or in the administration of its DBE program or the requirements of 49 CFR part 26.
All parties to DVRPC agreements shall take all necessary and reasonable steps under 49 CFR part 26 to ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of any subagreements and in addition each prime contractor or subrecipient must include the following assurance in any subcontracts entered into:
The contractor, sub recipient or subcontractor shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or sex in the performance of this contract. The contractor shall carry out applicable requirements of 49 CFR part 26 in the award and administration of this agreement.
DVRPC encourages all prospective consultants to use the following links to the PA and NJ
Unified Certification Program to locate DBE firms to utilize as sub-consultants.
In addition to DBEs, DVRPC encourages the use of small businesses under the following programs: Small Business Enterprise (SBE) in Pennsylvania, and Emerging Small Business Enterprise (ESBE) in New Jersey.
Small business concerns are those entities seeking to participate in contracts that meet the definition of a small business concern set forth in Section 3 of the Small Business Act and Small Business Administration regulations as per 13 CFR Part 121.
These programs are designed to facilitate greater participation of small businesses in transportation related procurements. Any party that enters into an agreement with DVRPC is encouraged to involve SBE/ESBEs in the required work and to submit documentation of any such involvement in the proposal narrative and budget.
Contractors looking for certified SBEs can search these online databases:
Contractors must maintain records to ensure compliance with 49 C.F.R Part 26 obligations by indicating the number of DBE, SBE/ESBE, and non-DBE/SBE/ESBE subcontractors, the type of work performed on the project, documentation of efforts to secure DBE/SBE/ESBE firms for available subcontracting opportunities and the means of communication used to obtain the services of DBE/SBE/ESBEs, and dollar amounts paid to DBE/SBE/ESBEs.
