Chapter 19: Monitoring DBE ActivityAnchor: #NKXSSWHS
Section 1: Monitoring DBE Goal Attainment
It is the prime contractor’s responsibility to monitor its progress towards meeting the goal. Progress towards meeting the established DBE goal should be monitored on a monthly basis during the course of the project.
DMS includes information to monitor DBE goal attainment to include:
- Anchor: #EFDYAWXL
- DBE commitment amounts Anchor: #i998711
- Payments to DBE subcontractors Anchor: #i998717
- Modifications to the original contract amount by change order
The prime contractor should contact TxDOT should a concern arise that it will not meet the contract DBE goal and seek options available to meet the goal.
TxDOT will also be monitoring the DBE project goal. If a prime contractor is not meeting the project’s DBE goal, TxDOT will send a “Not Meeting the Goal Letter” in DMS. The letter will notify the prime contractor to review its DBE goal attainment progress, and provide a corrective action plan to meet the goal or provide good faith efforts.
