Process and Application for Review of Pre-award Good Faith Efforts
If you, the contractor, is unable to meet the goal set forth in the project special provisions for which you have
submitted an apparent low bid, you may request that the Department find that you have made all possible efforts to
meet the goal in good faith.
You, as the apparent low bidder, must show that you have taken all reasonable steps to achieve the DBE goal which,
by their scope, intensity, and appropriateness to the objective, could reasonably be expected to obtain sufficient DBE
participation.
Appendix A of 49 CFR Part
26—Guidance Concerning Good Faith Efforts
will be generally but not exclusively
utilized in evaluating good faith effort applications. All applicants must use this form. And include the following:
1- Using the items list, identify the item performed in-house and items available to be subcontracted.
2- Based on the prices on your proposal identify the percentage of in-house work and work to be sublet for each
item.
3- Indicate all steps taken to identify DBE firms to match the work to be sublet in step 2.
4- List all DBE firms identified.
5- All communications between you and the firms identified in Step 4 to show your solicitation and their responses.
6- Any information of a similar nature relevant to the application.
All applications must be delivered to the Office of Contracts to the attention of the Post-Bid Unit. Division of Contract
Compliance will evaluate the application and you, the apparent low bidder, will be notify of approval, denial, or
request for additional documentation.
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 or submit additional work to DBE firms to meet the goal.
The request for the administrative reconsideration must be made in writing to:
Manager of Contracts Section
P. O. Box 317546

This reconsideration request will be forwarded to the DBE Screening Committee and a meeting will be scheduled with
the requester. At the meeting the apparent low bidder will have an opportunity to present documentation and/or
arguments concerning the issue of whether it made adequate Good Faith Efforts to meet the goal or that the goal was
excessive on the project based on subcontracting opportunities.
Within seven (7) days following the reconsideration meeting, the chairperson of the committee will notify you of the
decision. The DBE Screening Committee’s decision is final.
