Small Business Concern (SBC) Registration
ADOT has implemented the Small Business participation requirement as a component of its DBE program, aimed at helping to foster additional race-neutral DBE participation and to assist small businesses who seek to work on ADOT and subrecipient agency contracts. Small businesses can become registered as a Small Business Concern (SBC) by completing a few additional questions in the AZ UTRACS registration process.
To be registered as an SBC, firms must be:
- A for-profit business registered to conduct business in Arizona
- Independently owned and operated
- Not dominant in its field on a national basis
- Meets the Small Business Administration (SBA) size standard for annual income for its primary North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code
One benefit to your firm for completing the SBC registration is that your firm is eligible to receive free business support services, free trainings, and opportunities to network with Prime contractors. Another benefit for completing the SBC registration is that your firm is added to the AZ UTRACS Transportation Business Directory and a comprehensive firm profile is created at no cost to your firm, to advertise your firm’s capabilities to the business community and to promote where your firm is willing to do work. This enables firms to find one another and partner together to complete Arizona Transportation projects.
Your firm’s SBC Registration is good for three years. At the end of the three years, your firm’s primary email address will receive a notification to renew the SBC Registration for another three years. ADOT’s recommendation is that you review this profile once a year to ensure your firm profile accurately reflects information about your company. Any time your firm profile is updated, the registration deadline is extended for another three years.
