Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) has a minority and women business MWBE certification program that applies to contracts that do not receive federal funding.
While BART also administers a disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) certification program that includes MWBE firms, the MWBE certification is separate and distinct. The DBE certification applies only to federally-funded contracts.
As part of its efforts to encourage MWBE use on non-federally funded procurements, BART may apply MWBE participation goals on individual contracts.
