New Jersey Unified Certification Program
NJ TRANSIT is part of the New Jersey Unified Certification Program (NJ UCP), an initiative that streamlines the certification process. The NJ UCP is a collective vendor directory shared by NJ TRANSIT, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJ DOT) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). Firms that are certified as DBEs by any of these agencies are automatically included in the NJ UCP database.

To participate in any NJ TRANSIT project assigned a DBE, your company must be certified as a DBE in the state in which the firm is headquartered. Businesses must follow the standardized certification process, which is managed by such government agencies as NJ TRANSIT, NJ DOT and the PANYNJ. Once your business qualifies for DBE certification, it is listed in NJ TRANSIT's vendor directory as well as in the NJ UCP directory.
