It’s time to submit your annual Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) reports. As a condition of Ohio receiving capitalization grants from U.S. EPA for the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) and the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA), the Ohio EPA negotiates “fair share” Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) objectives with U.S. EPA. DBE’s include both minority business enterprises (MBE’s) and women’s business enterprises (WBE’s). The current negotiated goals for construction related activities are 1.2% of all contracts to MBE’s and 1.8% of all contracts to WBE’s. All loan recipients are to report DBE participation annually during the life of the construction phase of their project until construction is entirely completed using Form 5700‐52A.
