Maryland Department of Transportation (DOT) Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) / Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)/Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
Established in 1978, Maryland's Minority Business Enterprise Program is the oldest in the country. The MBE/DBE program was established to ensure that small, minority- and women-owned firms had the opportunity to participate fully and fairly in both state and United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) federally funded projects.
In 2014, the SBE program was introduced as a race-and-gender neutral program designed to provide contracting opportunities to small businesses on USDOT federally-aided projects with the State Highway Administration (SHA), Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), and Maryland Aviation Administration (MAA). In addition to implementing the State's MBE Program, which has a 29% overall participation goal, MDOT also implements the DBE program for contracts funded by the USDOT.
