DBE Certification Annual Update
DBE Certifications do not expire; however, DBE firms are required to submit an Annual Update/Affidavit of “no change” attesting that there has been no major change in the firm’s circumstances in order to maintain DBE certification. The deadline for the Annual Update varies depending on which UCP certifying entity is processing the application. A copy of the firm’s most recent tax return must be submitted with the Annual Update.
DBE Certification renewals are processed by the Unified Certification Program (UCP) which consists of ADOT, the City of Phoenix, and the City of Tucson. DBE applicants must submit their DBE certification renewal to the proper certifying entity, which is based on the firm’s primary location/address. Renewals submitted to the incorrect certifying entity will not be processed. Firms that do not submit required renewal documentation in a timely manner are considered non-responsive and may be decertified, if renewal information is not received as required.
