Businesses, stakeholders invited to participate in Sound Transit Disadvantaged Business Enterprise webinars on June 28

Sound Transit is inviting business owners and stakeholders to participate in one of two webinars to learn about the agency’s new proposed Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal and the efforts the organization will make to try to achieve that goal each year.

Sound Transit is working with BBC Research & Consulting to set a new overall  goal for the participation of DBEs in the Federal Transit Administration-funded projects it anticipates awarding in federal fiscal years 2023, 2024, and 2025.

The webinars will be held on Tuesday, June 28 on Microsoft Teams. One webinar will be held from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., while a second webinar will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

  1. It might have been nice to tell us all just what a “Disadvantaged Business Enterprise” is and/or what makes a business disadvantaged that has to do with Sound Transit. Am I really stupid that I just don’t know the obvious (a distinct possibility) or is this some sort of secret thing? Could you quantify and qualify BBC Research & Consulting perhaps? Like what is their specialty and area(s) of expertise; who have they consulted in the past and for what reason(s); how long have they been in business? Is Sound Transit, somehow destroying or adversely affecting some business’s? I mean, those of us in the Sound Transit District pay lots of extra taxes for something that supposedly benefits us. Don’t we deserve a little better communication than this pathetic example?
