DBE Certification

DBE Program - Virginia Unified Certification Program

The Virginia Unified Certification Program (VUCP) provides “one-stop shopping” certification services to small minority and women owned businesses seeking to participate in the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) Programs. This service eliminates the need for a small business to obtain DBE or ACDBE certification from multiple agencies in the State. The VUCP includes two certifying agencies; the Airports Authority is one and the other is the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprise (DMBE). Federal DBE or ACDBE certification by either agency is fully accepted throughout Virginia on USDOT funded contracts. There is no difference between DBE and ACDBE certifications performed by the Airports Authority or DMBE so there is no need to submit an application to both agencies.

DBE Concessions Program

The Airports Authority's ACDBE concessions program , or Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program, is also covered by the Department of Transportation's (DOT) requirements under 49 CFR Part 23, as amended, and Part 26. The ACDBE program requirements are included in Parts 23 and 26, which define specific types of business activities as concessions and provide guidance to the Authority and other airports on ACDBE certification, ACDBE goal setting, program management and reporting requirements. Only those concessions that have been designated as such in Part 23, Subpart F, are subject to the provisions of the ACDBE concessions program.
