Transit Vehicle Manufacturers (TVMs)

Sign up for email updates on this topic.

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 requirements of this section. You do not include FTA assistance used in transit vehicle procurements in the base amount from which your overall goal is calculated.

Only those transit vehicle manufacturers listed on FTA's certified list of Transit Vehicle Manufacturers, or that have submitted a goal methodology to FTA that has been approved or has not been disapproved, at the time of solicitation are eligible to bid.

A TVM's failure to implement the DBE Program in the manner prescribed by 49 C.F.R. 26 may result in removal from FTA's certified TVMs list and the inability to bid on future FTA-assisted vehicle procurements.

An FTA recipient's failure to comply with the TVM DBE provisions may result in formal enforcement action or appropriate sanctions as determined by FTA (e.g., FTA declining to participate in the vehicle procurement).

TVMs must submit the Uniform Report of DBE Awards/Commitments and Payments on June 1 and December 1 of each fiscal year. Access a copy of the Uniform Reporting Form (Excel) and Instructions (Excel). Reports must be submitted via email to FTA at

TVM training materials can be found on the Civil Rights Training Materials webpage.

FTA recipients are advised that the regulations require that recipients report their vehicle purchases to FTA. Pursuant to 49 CFR § 26.49(a)(4), within 30 days of making the award, the recipient should submit the following: 1)the name of the successful TVM bidder; and 2) the total dollar value of the contract. Recipients are to submit this information on their letterhead directly to their Regional Civil Rights Officer.
