The Ocala Marion Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26.  As a recipient of federal funding through the Federal Department of Transportation (FDOT), the TPO must comply with FDOT’s DBE Program Plan.

The TPO has a policy that will allow DBE’s to have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in all types of federally-assisted contracts, programs, and procurement activities.  The TPO will also take all the necessary and reasonable steps to ensure that all DBE’s have an opportunity to compete for and perform the contract work of the TPO in a non-discriminatory manner.
