South Carolina DBE Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 09/11/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) maintains the South Carolina Unified Certification Program (SCUCP), which is a convenient single place for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) to become certified as such. SCDOT is the lead agency for the SCUCP but there are also 27 participating SCUCP partners in the state. Going through the SCUCP benefits prospective DBEs with greater exposure through the online directory as well as other means, and offers a DBEs a chance to be counted towards the DBE goal on certain federally assisted projects, when a good faith effort is made to include those DBEs.

Does this local/state program offer reciprocal certifications with other local/state programs? Forms are provided for interstate certification for DBEs certified as such in other states but the process is not automatic.

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

Are there multiple agencies that offer this certification in the state? While multiple organizations are members of the SCUCP, application is made to SCDOT.

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 on projects with such a goal attached.
