Contract Goals


City of Mesquite will use contract goals to meet any portion of the overall goal that the recipient does not project being able to meet using RN means. Contract goals are established so that, over the period to which the overall foal applies, they will cumulatively result in meeting any portion of the recipient’s overall goal that is not projected to be met through the use of RC Means.


City of Mesquite will establish contract goals only on those DOT-assisted contracts that have subcontracting possibilities. It need not establish a contract goal on every such contract, and the size of the contract goals will be adapted to the circumstances of each such contract (e.g., type and location of work and availability of DBE’s to perform the particular type of work).

We will express our contract goals as a percentage of the Federal share of a DOT-assisted contract.
