DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AE98 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concession DBE (ACDBE) Program Burden Reduction and Improvements 
Abstract:

This rulemaking would update DOT's DBE and ACDBE regulations to alleviate burdens for lower-tiered recipients and aviation sponsors to have a DBE program, remove the ACDBE program requirement for non-hub primary airports, modernize the definition of "regular dealer" to reflect changing material handling practices in the field, enhance current requirements to ease the burden on prime contractors in finding competitive and qualified DBE subcontractors, adjust the DBE and ACDBE program personal net worth cap for inflation, formalize guidance establishing successful COVID-19 flexibilities, remove a loophole that prevents qualified DBEs from working on large multiyear projects, and make technical corrections and other necessary updates.
