This blog repeatedly chronicles the ramifications of failing to comply with the Department of Transportation’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise regulations.  Jail time for executives, disbarment, fines, and bid challenges are real threats to those contractors that run afoul of the DOT’s DBE rules.  Because of the amount of interest in this area, I am pleased to announce that I am now offering a scaled back version of a full DBE audit program for FREE.  My mini-DBE audit covers many of the topics discussed in my popular DBE Compliance Webinar, including:

1.  The importance of documenting good-faith efforts;

2.  Recognizing the red-flags of DBE fraud;

3.  Assuring your contracts are in compliance with federal and state DBE rules.
