Overview of the DBE Program

 

The City of Philadelphia DBE Program Office  certifies firms to participate on projects that receive federal funding.  The DBE Program Office operates under federal law (49 CFR Part 23 Part 26 ) and the Mayor’s Executive Order #14-08.  The DBE Program is a small business program that has both personal net worth and business size caps. 

The Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program (PA UCP) provides “one stop shopping” for certification of DBE applicants. A DBE applicant need only file one application to become certified for all recipients of United States Department of Transportation (FAA, FHWA, and/or the FTA) funds in Pennsylvania.

Our Brochure provides more information on the Philadelphia DBE Program and The PA UCP.

The City of Philadelphia Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) registers firms to participate on projects that are funded solely by the City. OEO operates under Mayor's Executive Order 5-10, Mayor's Executive Order 14-08Mayor's Executive Order 02-05 .
