AZ UTRACS Transportation Business Portal provides different resources for different types of firms. This page explains various roles and how each user (role) uses the system.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE)

Minority and women-owned firms who meet the qualifications in 49 CFR Part 26 may apply for DBE Certification. DBE Certifications do not expire, but DBE firms must submit a "No Change" update every year to maintain an active DBE certification.

ADOT will automatically creates an AZ UTRACS registration for a firm that is approved for DBE certification. A newly certified DBE firm is also automatically registered as a Small Business Concern (SBC) when they become DBE certified. However, a potential DBE firm that has not yet been certified may complete an AZ UTRACS and Small Business registration before DBE certification is complete, if they choose to do so.

Using the Checklist at the right, DBE firms are encouraged to review and update their AZ UTRACS Firm Directory profile every year, to ensure it accurately reflects the DBE firm’s capabilities and accurately shows the work that can be performed for DBE credit.

DBEs must also submit DBE Annual Updates every year to maintain their DBE certification. Annual Update Deadlines may vary based on the UCP Certifying agency. Contact your certifying agency for more information.

Small Business Concerns (SBC)

Small business inclusion is an important component of the Federal DBE Program. By being registered as a Small Business Concern (SBC) can receive many of the same business resources, services and networking opportunities as DBEs. Additionally, ADOT and its subrecipients, encourage prime contractors to provide subcontracting opportunities to SBCs.

Small Businesses that meet the Small Business Administration size standard may apply as a Small Business Concern, by answering a few extra questions at the end of completing their AZ UTRACS Registration. The Small Business Concern registration is good for three years and the registration is extended each time a firm updates their AZ UTRACs registration.
