The Charleston County Aviation Authority (the Authority) is proposing an overall DBE participation goal of 14.8 percent of the dollar value of the federal share of contracts during the federal fiscal years of 2018-2020 that are funded in whole or in part by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
This proposed goal applies to firms meeting the DBE certification criteria defined in 49 CFR Part 26. The Authority estimates that in meeting its overall goal of 14.8 percent, it will obtain 5 percent from race-neutral participation and 10 percent through race conscious measures, including setting contract goals.
The proposed goal rationale, consistent with the Authority’s DBE Plan, is available for inspection at the Aviation Authority administrative offices at Charleston International Airport, 5500 International Blvd., #101, North Charleston, SC 29418 through September 20, 2017, during regular business hours. To schedule an appointment to review the goal rationale, please contact the Aviation Authority at 843-767-7000. Written comments concerning the proposed goal will be accepted at the above address through October 2, 2017, and may be emailed to info@iflyCHS.com
