Oklahoma DBE Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 08/08/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) maintains a Certification Process that allows for socially and economically disadvantaged firms to be certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE). Once a firm is certified as a DBE, they will be listed in a online directory of DBEs, and are eligible to receive services from the DBE Supportive Service Program, which provides various sorts of assistance and education. DBEs, once certified, will also be eligible to count towards the DBE participation goals on certain USDOT-assisted projects. Applying for DBE certification is done through the Oklahoma Unified Certification Program (OUCP).

Does this local/state program offer reciprocal certifications with other local/state programs? ODOT maintains procedures for offering interstate certification to businesses already certified as DBEs in their home state, but this process is not automatically reciprocal.

Does this certification expire? DBEs must submit an annual no-change affidavit in order to remain certified.

Are there multiple agencies that offer this certification in the state? ODOT is the sole certifying member of the OUCP.

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 reach the DBE participation goal attached to a given project.
