Alaska DBE Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 03/24/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

The Alaska Approved Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program runs a certification process, the objectives of which are to ensure not only that the applicable laws are being followed and that DBEs can compete fairly for federally funded transportation projects, but to assist DBE firms in competing outside of the DBE program as well. Companies wishing to attain DBE certification must meet several criteria relating to ownership and control as well as to the nature of their disadvantagement. The Alaska Unified Certification Program aims to be a one-stop means of certification as a DBE within the state of Alaska.

Does this local/state program offer reciprocal certifications with other local/state programs? As a result of federal rulemaking effective February 28, 2011, all states are required to accept DBE certification obtained in other states, unless the state finds good cause not to accept it.

Does this certification expire? Every year on the anniversary of a firm's certification as a DBE, an affidavit must be provided by the firm's owner(s) to a person authorized by State law to administer oaths or an unsworn declaration executed under penalty of perjury of the laws of the United States. The affidavit will certify (in details specified on the program homepage) that the firm is still eligible to be certified as a DBE.

Are there multiple agencies that offer this certification in the state? The Alaska Unified Certification Program specifies that all applications to be certified as a DBE must be made to the Alaska Civil Rights Office.
