Public Notice

Public Notice Issuance Date: December 26, 2018
The Broward County Office of Economic and Small Business Development hereby announces its revised FY 2018 to 2020 Race Conscious Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) goal of 1.04% for car rental airport concessions. The proposed goal and rationale are available for inspection between 8:30AM and 5:00PM, Monday through Friday at the Broward County Office of Economic and Small Business Development, located at 115 S Andrews Ave., Room A-680, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301, for 30 days from the date of this publication. 

Comments on the ACDBE goal will be accepted for 45 days from the date of this publication and can be sent to the following:
​Broward County ACDBE Liaison Officer
Sandy-Michael McDonald
115 S Andrews Ave., Room A-680

or

College Park, GA 30337

Contract Goals
The Broward County Office of Economic and Small Business Development will use contract goals to meet any portion of the overall goal that the recipient does not project being able to meet using Race Neutral (RN) means. Contract goals are established so that, over the period to which the overall goal 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 RN means. 

The Broward County Office of Economic and Small Business Development will establish contract goals only on those Department of Transportation (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 ACDBEs to perform the particular type of work).

We will express our contract goals as a percentage of the total amount of a DOT-assisted contract.
