Does ABI support Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs)?

ABI is committed to the practice of non-discrimination in the selection of team members and relationships with sub-contractors with a desire to reflect diversity in the participation of companies engaged in the Atlanta BeltLine Project. ABI strongly encourages participation by Female Business Enterprises (“FBE”), Minority Business Enterprises (“MBE”), Small Disadvantaged Businesses (“SDB”), and Small Business Enterprises (“SBE”) in all contracts issued by ABI. These enterprises shall be collectively referred to herein as Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (“DBEs”). It is anticipated that as a part of a responsive proposal, DBE participation will be included. Projects may have a DBE goal and Local business utilization goal. The goal for certain funded Project has been set at 30%.However, nothing herein should indicate that a DBE may not apply and be selected independently, as DBEs that meet the qualifications of this RFP are encouraged to submit their qualifications for consideration. In order to participate as a DBE on the contract, said DBE must be certified (as an FBE, MBE, SDB, SBE or DBE) through GDOT, the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council, the U.S. Small Business Administration, or the City of Atlanta. SBEs must be registered with the City of Atlanta and are defined in Section 2-1357 of Division 9 of the City of Atlanta Code of Ordinances, as amended. ABI maintains data on the utilization of DBE entities on all contracts with the utilization of ABI’s Subcontractor/Subconsultant Utilization and DBE Participation Certification.Each Offeror for ABI shall list any and all Female, Minority, Small Disadvantaged Business, Small Business Enterprises, and/or Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (FBE, MBE, SDB, SBE, and/or DBE) that have been or will be utilized on this contract; the amount of revenue received or to be received by the DBE; and the percentage of the overall Scope of Services the specific DBE will provide under the contract. All invoices should be in a format approved by the ABI Project Manager and reflect the sums to be received by DBEs (FBEs, MBEs, SDBs, and SBEs) from the total payment to be received by the Offeror. The invoices should also reflect a total amount of compensation paid to date to the Offeror and each DBE participant along with their corresponding percentage of the total compensation received. Offeror will also be responsible for submitting lien waivers from each of its DBE participants for all payments received, where necessary, and affirm that the Offeror is current with all payment obligations due to the DBE participants at the time of the submission of an invoice for payment. Offeror shall be deemed a Constructive Trustee of the funds paid to it that are to be disbursed to a specific DBE participant. Failure to pay sums due to DBE participants shall be deemed a material breach of the terms of any agreement to which Offeror may become a party as a result of its selection as the Offeror.Persons or firms interested in obtaining applications for certification should contact one or more of the following organizations:

  • City of Atlanta – Office of Contract Compliance (FBE/MBE/SBE Certification): 55 Trinity Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia 30303, Tel: (404) 330-6010, Fax: (404) 658-7359.
  • U.S. Small Business Administration (SDB certification): acceptable provided certification reflects minority or women-owned status. Requirements are found at www.sba.gov.
  • Georgia Department of Transportation (DBE Certification): One Georgia Center, 600 West Peachtree NW, Atlanta, GA 30308, Tel: (404) 631-1990. DBE Helpdesk: (404) 631-1273.
  • MARTA (DBE Certification): 2424 Piedmont Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30324, Tel: (404) 848-5270 Fax: (404) 848-4302, Email: asmith1@itsmarta.com.
  • Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (MBE Certification): 759 West Peachtree Street, Suite 107, Atlanta, GA 30308, Tel: (404) 589-4929.
A firm selected by the Offeror can only satisfy one of the three categories. The same firm may not, for example, be listed for participation as an MBE organization and an SBE organization even if the level of participation exceeds each category’s goal. All firms must be registered or certified prior to the submittal of the proposal. An Offeror is at risk in that there may be an issue of time to certify or register if it intends to use a firm that is not certified or registered at the time the Proposal is submitted.   Applicants must include copies of MBE, FBE, SDB, and/or DBE certifications for the contractors and subcontractors listed in their proposal packages, if any.
