The Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority (MMVTA) has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26. The MMVTA has received Federal financial assistance from the Department of Transportation, and as a condition of receiving this assistance, the MMVTA has signed an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26.
It is the policy of the MMVTA to ensure that DBEs as defined in Part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT–assisted contracts. It is also our policy:
Nancy Basile, MMVTA’s Manager of Finance & Grant Programs, has been delegated as the DBE Liaison Officer. In that capacity, Nancy Basile is responsible for implementing all aspects of the DBE program. Implementation of the DBE program is accorded the same priority as compliance with all other legal obligations incurred by the MMVTA in its financial assistance agreements with the Department of Transportation.
The MMVTA has disseminated this policy statement to the Board of Directors and all of the components of our organization. We have posted the policy notice at MMVTA facilities, in the community and by publishing in the following newspapers of local circulation: The New Pittsburgh Courier, Pittsburgh, PA; The Mon Valley Independent, Monessen, PA; and The Observer-Reporter, Washington, PA.
MMVTA’s DBE Goal for FFY 2020, 2021 and 2022 is 3% . This is required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for Department of Transportation assisted contracts pursuant to Federal Regulations 49 CFR, Part 26.
The proposed goal and its rationale were available for review until June 30, 2019 (30 calendar days following the date of notice) during normal business hours by contacting Nancy Basile, DBE Liaison Officer MMVTA, 1300 McKean Ave., Charleroi, PA 15022, 724-489-0880 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
