NJ TRANSIT first developed DBE Certification Workshops in fall 2011. The goal of these workshops is to provide information and support to small, minority and women-owned businesses seeking certification as Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE), with the New Jersey Unified Certification Program (NJ UCP). NJ TRANSIT's Business Development Outreach and Certification team designed and deliver the workshop content to enhance understanding of what it means to be a DBE, the federal regulations that apply to the DBE Program, the purpose and function of the NJ UCP, and the certification application and approval process. The workshop includes a detailed walk-through of the DBE certification application document, review of the materials required to complete the application, and an overview of what happens once a business is certified as a DBE.
DBE Certification Workshops are delivered once a month at NJ TRANSIT headquarters (see 2012 dates below), and can be delivered on a limited basis to large audiences at other locations by request. If you are interested in attending a DBE Certification Workshop please visit our Events RSVP page, or would like to request a certification workshop presentation for a group, please email: OBDP@njtransit.com with the subject: "Certification Workshops".
