The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires that an updated three-year Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal for airport projects be submitted by August 1, 2018. This three-year goal is based on the proposed projects for the fiscal years 2019-21. In addition, FAA requires that the DBE program be submitted for approval if there are any major changes to the DBE program. The changes to the program this year included changes to the prompt payment section to document what is being done.
Since Decorah’s anticipated projects during the next three years is subject to change based on available funding, etc., a goal is established and published for comment so that a DBE program and goal is on file with the FAA. Attached is the revised draft DBE program and the FY 2019-21 goal that is based on a terminal project that would have more than $250,000 (the dollar threshold requiring a DBE goal).
The attached public notice with the three-year goal is posted on the city website and locally in a newspaper for a thirty day comment period.
