DBE Program

It is the policy of the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) to ensure that Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) shall have the maximum feasible opportunity to participate in the performance of contracts financed in whole or in part with STA funds. The STA and its employees shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, or disability in the award and administration of STA contracts. It is the intention of the STA to create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for contracts and subcontracts relating to the STA’s construction, procurement and professional services activities.

The STA has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and their Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 26 (49 CFR 26).

RFP Responses Due : July 9, 2024 4:00 pm

To obtain a copy of the full Request for Proposals (RFP), please download the RFP as a PDF file from the STA website (https://sta.ca.gov/work-with-sta/procurement-opportunities/) or call the STA at (707) 424-6075.

The RFP describes the project, presents the requirements of the Proposer, and outlines the criteria that will be used to evaluate the Proposal.

Qualified organizations are invited to submit one (1) hard copy and one (1) digital copy (CD or flash drive) of your Proposal to the STA office no later than 4:00 PM on Tuesday, July 9, 2024 addressed to:

Attn: Kathrina Gregana
Associate Planner
Solano Transportation Authority
423 Main Street
Suisun City, CA 94585

Note that this deadline is firm and late submittals will not be accepted. Proposals will be reviewed and, if needed, the firms/teams whose qualifications most closely meet the STA’s needs will be invited to interview on or around the week of July 23, 2024.

The STA has adopted a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (“DBE”) goal for this project which is 21%. Please note that the attached DBE forms (Exhibit 10-O1 and Exhibit 10-O2) must be filled out and included in an appendix of your firm’s proposal. Firms whose proposals fail to meet the established DBE goal must demonstrate in writing what efforts they have made to locate DBE

firms. The STA has the right to deem a proposal as non-responsive if this participation goal has not been met, and documentation demonstrating a good faith effort is judged inadequate. Guidelines for determining good faith efforts are available from the STA.

The STA encourages, but does not require for this solicitation, the use of local firms. To assist in the use of local firms, the STA has prepared a database of contact information for local firms for convenience purposes only and without guarantees as to the ability of such firms to provide the services. This database and the Local Preference Policy can be viewed at: https://sta.ca.gov/operations/rfp-rfq-local-preference/

If you have questions regarding this project, please contact Kathrina Gregana, Associate Planner at kgregana@sta.ca.gov or 707-399-3230. Thank you for your interest.
