Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

The City does not maintain a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) directory, but instead uses the Missouri Department of Transportation published directory along with the directories of the Missouri Unified Certification Program (UCP) partners to identify certified DBEs.  The firms contained in the directory are certified as meeting the certification eligibility requirements as outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations, 49CFR Part 26.  Copies of the directory are available by contacting Missouri Department of Transportation General Headquarters or Customer Service Center:
