About the MDOT Office of Minority Business:  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 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.  Individual DBE Program goals are only established for each of MDOT's federally funded business units; SHA, MAA, and MTA.  Current DBE Program participation goals are as follows:

  • SHA: 27.16%

  • MAA: 25.0%

  • MTA: 30.0%
