Inquiry #1: The DBE goal set by the Department on this Project is unrealistic based on the available DBE capacity in the market. Attempting to reach the goal, if attainable at all, will require significant premium costs to the bids. Please revise the goal to 11% to ensure meaningful DBE participation without causing the Department to pay excessive premium costs.
