The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Utilization Achievement Award was presented to Bergeron Land Development by the Florida Transportation Builders Association (FTBA)

Bergeron Land Development (BLD) has announced that it has received the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Utilization Achievement Award from the Florida Transportation Builders Association (FTBA).   The award recognizes Bergeron’s utilization of DBE-certified subcontractors on  its Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) projects during the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

“With every Bergeron project, we set goals and objectives within several areas including timelines, budget, and even using DBE-certified subcontractors,” said Bergeron Land Development Founder and President Ronald M. Bergeron, Sr.. “ I’m proud to report that like the majority of the goals we set, we exceeded the DBE goals for all FDOT projects.  Bergeron will continue to contribute to the growth and eventual self-sufficiency of disadvantaged businesses.”

About the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program:

The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) is a legislatively mandated USDOT program that applies to Federal-aid highway dollars expended on federally-assisted contracts issued by USDOT recipients such as State Transportation Agencies (STAs). The U.S. Congress established the DBE program in 1982 to:

  • Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts;
  • Help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT-assisted contracts, and
  • Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the marketplace outside of the DBE program.
