The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission is committed to providing opportunities for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) to compete for work. DBEs are certified by the Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program (PAUCP) and the New Jersey Unified Certification Program (NJUCP) in accordance with 49 CFR Part 26. Any party that enters into an agreement with DVRPC is encouraged to involve Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in the required work and to submit documentation of any such involvement in the proposal narrative and budget.

Any party that enters into an agreement with DVRPC shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or sex in the award and performance of any agreement or in the administration of its DBE program or the requirements of 49 CFR part 26.

All parties to DVRPC agreements shall take all necessary and reasonable steps under 49 CFR part 26 to ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of any subagreements and in addition each prime contractor or subrecipient must include the following assurance in any suncontracts entered into:

The contractor, sub recipient or subcontractor shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or sex in the performance of this contract. The contractor shall carry out applicable requirements of 49 CFR part 26 in the award and administration of this agreement.

Small Business Enterprise and Emerging Small Business Enterprise Programs

In addition to DBEs, DVRPC encourages the use of small businesses under the following programs: Small Business Enterprise (SBE) in Pennsylvania, and Emerging Small Business Enterprise (ESBE) in New Jersey.

Small business concerns are those entities seeking to participate in contracts that meet the definition of a small business concern set forth in Section 3 of the Small Business Act and Small Business Administration regulations as per 13 CFR Part 121.

These programs are designed to facilitate greater participation of small businesses in transportation related procurements.
