Determining ATA DBE Goals for FYs 2014-2017

As a sub-recipient of federal funds for public transportation, ATA is required to establish DBE goals.  These goals must be advertised before adoption by the Board for any public comments which may affect the establishment of the goal. 

The following describes the process used to establish proposed goal for the Operating and Construction related opportunities.

Determining Procurement Opportunities

The type of procurement opportunities were first determined for both the operating budget and potential construction projects. 

The operating procurement opportunities include the purchase of fuel, fluids, bus parts, tires, office supplies, newspaper subscriptions, radio & TV advertising, telecommunications and other information services, commercial printing, legal, auditing, computer programming, janitorial, landscaping, and catering related activities. 

Determining Number of Firms with NAICS Appropriate Codes

After determining that these were the types of opportunities that may be procured for the 3 year period beginning July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2017, the U. S. Census NAICS database was consulted.  Appropriate company codes were determined (e.g., 447190 for gasoline stations, 453210 for office supplies, etc.).

The ATA determined that its procurement catchment area included the area in which services are offered (Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean and Potter counties) and surrounding counties.  This incorporates a seventeen county area from which the number of total firms established with the appropriate codes is counted. 

Determining Number of DBE Firms with NAICS Appropriate Codes

The Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program maintains a database of all registered disadvantaged business enterprised as either a Minority Business Enterprise, a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise or both a Minority & Woman Owned Business Enterprise.  These firms are certified through authorized agencies.  Once certified, the information on the DBE firm is included in the database to determine what firms are offering goods/services as qualified DBE firms.

From the PAUCP DBE database, the number of firms providing goods or services for the catchment area is determined by extracting the number of DBE firms in the 17 counties, and reviewing each one for the appropriate NAICS codes.  These firms are counted in the # of DBE firms in the catchment area.

Calculating the DBE Goal

The goal is calculated by divided the number of DBE firms in the catchment area by the total number of firms in the same catchment area.  The following are the resulting calculations:




Total Firms in Catchment Area



Total DBE firms in Catchment Area



% of DBE firms to Total Firms
