DBE Program Manual and Goal
Welcome to the Southern California Logistic Airport's (hereinafter referred to as "SCLA") Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program site. This site has been developed with the objective providing assistance and outreach to Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) that want to work on SCLA contracts.
The SCLA receives U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Assistance funds through the Federal Aviation Administration and as a condition of receiving such assistance has developed a DBE Program in accordance with federal regulations published under U.S. DOT 49 CFR Part 26.
In accordance with these regulations SCLA's policy is to ensure that minority-owned, and other disadvantaged small businesses can fairly compete for and perform on contracts and subcontracts financed in whole, or in part with DOT funds.

Disadvantaged Business Bonding Assistance
SCLA is committed to the growth of Disadvantaged Businesses within SCLA's market area and regularly communicates with its subcontracting community to identify possible barriers to the growth and success of Disadvantaged Businesses. SCLA recognizes that a firm's ability to obtain performance and payment bonds can pose a significant barrier to their ability to win public sector contracts sand for those firms that are able to obtain bonds, being able to bond adequately may also often pose a barrier to working on public contracts.
