To support our Good Faith Effort outreach for a major bid, we engaged the services of DBE GoodFaith, Inc. We could not have been more impressed with the level of professionalism or the thoroughness of the services provided by their staff. Their level of communication, the scope of their support, and the quality of the documentation exceed every expectation. Should any future bid require similar support, we would not hesitate to engage the services of DBE GoodFaith again.

Which certifications can help with?


Disadvantaged Business Enterprises

DBEs are frequently required on contracts that received federal funding from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). DBE contract compliance and certification programs are usually administered by state's DOTs.


Minority and Women Business Enterprises

MBE and WBE good faith effort requirements are usually found on state and locally-funded contracts. However, some federally-supported contracts, like those funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) may also require M/WBE outreach.


Small Business Enterprises

SBE programs are commonly implemented by state and local governments as race-neutral efforts to include smaller firms to the public contracting process. The SBE designation is usually defined by the Small Business Administration's (SBA) size standards.


Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises

There are only a handful DVBE programs in the U.S., but is still equipped to help you reach out to DVBEs. States that have DVBE programs include: Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Maryland, and New York.


Historically Underutilized Businesses

HUB programs are similar to DBE, MBE, and WBE programs in that they help socially and economically disadvantaged businesses participate in public contracting. HUB programs can be found in a number of states, including Texas and North Carolina.


Section 3, Local Businesses, etc.

There are many other programs at all levels of government, such as Section 3, Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE), and Emerging Business Enterprise (EBE), that require that prime bidders perform good faith efforts. If a database exists, we can help.
