Transit Vehicle Manufacturers (TVMs)
If you are an FTA recipient, you must require in your DBE program that each transit vehicle manufacturer, as a condition of being authorized to bid or propose on FTA-assisted transit vehicle procurements, certify that it has complied with the U.S. DOT DBE requirements at 49 CFR Part 26. See 49 CFR § 26.49(a).
If you are a transit vehicle manufacturer, you must establish and submit for FTA’s approval an annual overall DBE goal. In setting your overall goal, you should be guided, to the extent applicable, by the principles underlying 49 CFR §26.45. See 49 CFR § 26.49(b).
Failure to comply with this requirement may result in “formal enforcement actions” or “appropriate program sanctions” as determined by FTA. See 49 CFR § 26.101(a). Such measures may include FTA declining to participate in the vehicle procurement(s).
TVM training materials can be found on the Civil Rights Training Materials webpage.
An important program notice regarding FY 2015 DBE goal and program submissions (PDF) is now available.
