The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), being subject to the rules of the US Department of Transportation (USDOT), oversees a Disadvantaged Business Enteprise (DBE) program. NMDOT allows socially and economically disadvantaged businesses to become certified as DBEs. Once certified as such, contractors on projects receiving USDOT assistance must make a good faith effort to reach out to DBEs and bring them into the bidding process.

Does this local/state program offer reciprocal certifications with other local/state programs? If a firm is certified as a DBE in its home state, NMDOT may, at its discretion, accept this certification without further procedures, but it may also make certain other requirements of the firm to seek such certification.

Does this certification expire? DBEs must submit an affidavit of no change on a yearly basis in order to retain certification.

Are there multiple agencies that offer this certification in the state? NMDOT is the sole certifying agency in the New Mexico Unified Certification Program.

Does this program require bidders attempt to make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals? Yes, bidders must make a good-faith effort to meet the DBE participation goals on such projects where the goal attains.
