Rev 05/13
Connecticut Department of Transportation
Process and Application for Review of Pre-award Good Faith Effort and a Waiver of part of the SBE
requirement
If you, as the identified low bid contractor, are unable to meet the SBE set-aside established for this
project, you may request a waiver. The request for waiver cannot exceed 50% of the original set-aside
requirement.
Be mindful that the SBE requirement is a set-Aside and not a goal; therefore the work must be set-aside
for SBE participation. The burden is on you, the apparent low bidder, to establish that subcontractors
are not available either due to all being busy or none available for the items of work in your project.
You must show that you have taken all reasonable steps to achieve the SBE requirement and consulted
the SBE directory at:
http://www.biznet.ct.gov/SupplierDiversity/SDSearch.aspx
All applications must be delivered to the Office of Contracts to the attention of the Post-Bid Unit at:
Manager of Contracts Section
P. O. Box 317546
Newington, CT 06131-7546
The Office of Contract Compliance will evaluate the application and you, the apparent low bidder, will
be notify of approval, denial, or request for additional documentation. Request for additional
information are governed by the time limitations as if the request was denied.
In cases where the application is denied, the apparent low bidder shall have seven (7) days from the
date of notification to request administrative reconsideration by submitting additional information or
submit additional work to SBE firms to meet the requirement.
If additional information is submitted by you, within seven (7) days from the receipt of such
documents, the Department will advise you of our decision. If the decision is a denial, you must
submit, within seven (7) days additional nominees to meet the requirement or forfeit your rights to the
project.
