The Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Program offers small businesses another avenue of maximizing their opportunities of doing business with TxDOT. The program applies only to highway construction and maintenance projects that are funded entirely by state and/or local funds.
Businesses interested in pursuing an SBE certification must meet the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) size standards and submit a completed application. The SBE Program is a TxDOT program authorized by law, 43 TAC §9.55. Certified DBE firms are recognized as SBEs without having to submit an SBE application and are listed in the TUCP DBE Directory.
Small and minority-owned businesses may refer to the Business Development Networking Guide for names and contact information of business development organizations throughout the state. Businesses that would like to be added to the guide or have their information updated, may fill out the Business Outreach and Services Contact Card.
