PennDOT is obligated by the Federal DBE Regulations to establish overall Department goals for DBE participation every three years. On June 10, in the PA Bulletin, PennDOT published its proposed methodology for setting goals 2018-2020.
APC has analyzed the proposed goal setting methodology and believes it is significantly different than previous PennDOT goal-setting methodology. Please visit the APC website where we will shortly publish our analysis and concerns. APC will be sending formal comments to the Department.
The industry has until July 10, 2017 to provide input to PennDOT for their consideration.
