Three operating administrations within the U.S. Department of Transporation (DOT) have a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program. These are the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). As such, the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) within DOT maintains the Department's main DBE web site, which includes Guidance for DBE Program Administrators.
