Streamline reporting for DBE and on the job training
For civil rights assessment and contract teams
The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) is a mandated program that applies to all federal highway dollars spent. When federally-assisted contracts are issued, the recipients, such as State Transportation Agencies (STAs), are required to ensure that each project adheres to established DBE goals and commitments. This requires clearly defined goals, careful tracking and measurement of actuals, and federal reporting.
Most teams track this using paper forms and spreadsheets and piecing together information from project estimates, bids and contractor reports. This becomes a time-consuming, cumbersome and error-prone process.
Aurigo’s online Civil Rights & Labor Management product streamlines the end-to-end process and gives your Civil Rights Assessment team a centralized view of DBE goals, commitments, progress and actuals for every project.
