DBE GOALS FOR FEDERALLY FUNDED AVIATION PROJECTS TO BE DISCUSSED AT TWO PUBLIC MEETINGS

Posted on: June 02, 2021

The Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) will be holding two input sessions to gather public comments concerning the Fiscal Year 2022-2024 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Triennial goals for Federal Aviation Administration-funded projects for the Iowa DOT.

In establishing our three-year goal, the Iowa DOT is seeking public participation on its goal-setting process and to obtain information concerning the availability of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged businesses, the effects of discrimination on opportunities for DBEs, and the Iowa DOT’s efforts to establish a level playing field for the participation of DBEs.

Both meetings will be held via conference call

Thursday, June 10 from 9 – 10 a.m. – Goal methodology and setting processes

Thursday, June 24 from 9 – 10 a.m. – Proposed goal discussion

Those who wish to call into either meeting by telephone can do so at 866-685-1580 code: 9820640825. Comments will also be accepted via email. To comment, please email shane.wright@iowadot.us.

If you require special accommodations during the conference call, please notify the Iowa DOT contact listed above by June 8, 2021.
