New Disadvantaged Business Enterprise and Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Size Limits as Adjusted for Inflation

Summary

Under the statutes governing the Department’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program, firms are not considered small business concerns and are therefore ineligible as DBEs once their average annual receipts over the preceding three fiscal years reach specified dollar limits. The Department of Transportation is amending the size limits or gross receipts caps to ensure that the opportunity of small businesses to participate in the Department’s DBE programs remains unchanged after taking inflation into account. This final rule provides 2009 inflation adjustment of size limits on small businesses participating in the DOT’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise programs.
