DBE Program 2022 Updates  |  DBE Program Goal Methodology



New Goals

The Montachusett Regional Transit Authority’s (MART’s) overall goal for FFY2024-2026 (October 1, 2024, through September 30, 2026) is 3.5 percent of the Federal financial assistance we will expend in Department of Transportation (DOT)-assisted contracts, excluding Federal Transit Authority (FTA) funds to be used for the purchase of transit vehicles. MART expects to award $3,508,000 in DOT-assisted contracts between FFY2024 and FFY2026 for capital projects. $1,900,000 is expected to be awarded in FFY2024, $896,000 in FFY25, and $712,000 in FFY26. In total, MART has set a goal of spending $122,780 with DBEs during the next three fiscal years. MART expects to meet or exceed its goal of 3.5 percent through race-neutral participation and will award zero percent of its contracts through race-conscious measures.
