The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is committed to the concept and practice of equal opportunity in all aspects of business contracting. The Alameda CTC offers contracting opportunities to Alameda County businesses under its Local Business Contract Equity (LBCE) Program as well as its Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program.
Under its LBCE Program, Alameda CTC certifies firms as Local Business Enterprise (LBE), Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE) or Very Small Local Business Enterprise (VSLBE), depending on the firm's size. This program applies to contracts funded solely by Measure B funds or a combination of Measure B and local funds. Contracts that include state and federal funds must adhere to state and federal requirements. For more information about how your firm can become a certified local business, visit our Local Business Contract Equity Program web page.
To participate as a DBE in federal-aid contracts, small, disadvantaged firms, including those owned by minorities and women, must apply for and receive certification as a DBE. For the state of California, DBE certification is performed by the certifying agencies of the California Unified Certification Program.
To learn more about DBE criteria and the DBE certification process, see our Disadvantaged Business Enterprise web page or visit the U.S. Department of Transportation, Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization website.
