Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation (WisDOT) maintains a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program for the benefit of certain socially and economically disadvantaged businesses. The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) mandates DBE participation goals on certain projects, and participants in such projects in Wisconsin must make a good faith effort to involve certified DBEs in the process. DBEs will also be listed in an online directory WisDOT maintains, and will be eligible for certain mentor programs.

Does this certification expire? An annual no-change affidavit must be submitted in order to retain a current DBE certification.

Are there multiple agencies that offer this certification in the state? Certifying agencies for the state of Wisconsin include WisDOT, the City of Madison, Dane County, and Milwaukee County.

Does this program require bidders attempt to make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals? Yes, bidders are required to make a good faith effort to reach whatever DBE participation goal has been specified for a given project receiving federal funding.

Is any loan or bonding assistance provided through this program? Support services may include bonding assistance; interested firms should contact WisDOT directly.
