Knoxville Area Transit’s U.S.-D.O.T
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Goal for FY 2021-2023
In compliance with the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise program established in 49 CFR 26, Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) proposes to establish a goal of 2.5% of Federal financial assistance expended in D.O.T.-assisted contracts in federal fiscal years 2021-2023. This goal, established by KAT, is one of many components within the City of Knoxville’s DBE goals established by the Small Business and Diversity Outreach Office. This goal directly relates to Federal Transit Administration funding to be spent with firms certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) under the Tennessee Unified Certification Program (TN-UCP) and does not apply to transit vehicle purchases. KAT proposes to meet this goal by advertising bid opportunities through the City of Knoxville Purchasing website, DBE and general circulation publications, and by advising City Purchasing at the time of requisition of TN-UCP certified firms that should be included in bid notices. The proposed goal and the entire DBE program document are available for viewing during normal business hours at Knoxville Area Transit’s 1135 Magnolia Avenue offices for 30 days following the date of this notice. Comments on the goal and program, or questions about DBE certification through TN-UCP should be addressed to Si McMurray, DBE Liaison Officer, Knoxville Area Transit, 301 Church Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37915; telephone: 865.215.7803; email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the comments link below. Comments may also be addressed to D.O.T. at U.S. Department of Transportation, Office of Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration, 1200 Jersey Ave, SE, Washington, DC 20590.
