Minority and Disadvantaged Business Contracting

The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority is committed to guaranteeing opportunities for disadvantaged and minority-owned business to participate in airport contracts. Three programs support that initiative.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

In accordance with Federal Law, the Aviation Authority maintains a DBE program to ensure nondiscrimination in the award of USDOT-assisted contracts and create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete for those contracts.

Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

This program ensures that DBEs have equal opportunity to receive and participate in concession-related contracts.

Woman and Minority-Owned Business Enterprise Program

This policy, created by the Aviation Authority, provides for Woman and Minority-Owned Businesses to have full and fair opportunities to compete for and participate in the performance of non-federally funded contracts or in the purchase of goods and services.

To become certified as a W/MBE and become eligible to participate in Authority-funded contracts, contact one of the following agencies:

Businesses certified as a DBE with the Florida Unified Certification Program are also eligible to participate.
