The BSD Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) administers the DBE Program as outlined in U.S. Department of Transportation 49 CFR Part 26 and ensures that DBE firms are afforded viable opportunities to participate on BSD projects agency wide.

OSD sets the agency’s overall goal three year goal and monitors progress toward goal attainment; sets contract goals on various construction projects, goods and service contracts; manages the DBE Certification Program, monitors and enforces 49 CFR Part 26 on its projects funded in whole or part with federal funds and provides various outreach services.
