DBE Quarterly Reports

The participation of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise is determined by evaluating the prime contractor's actual payments to the DBE. The prime contractor is obligated under rules set forth by the South Carolina Department of Transportation when reporting and receiving credit towards the DBE contract goal. The contractor must give an account of these amounts on the Quarterly Report.
