Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (ACDBE)
The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program is promulgated pursuant to 49 CFR Parts 23 and 26. It includes all contracts for construction, professional services, and procurement which are funded in whole or in part by federal dollars from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). This also includes certain concessions operations at the airport. As a recipient of Federal financial assistance, the NOAB is mandated to maintain a viable DBE program to promote and maintain a level playing field for all DBEs to compete for and to perform on these federally-funded contracts. The NOAB adheres to nondiscriminatory practices in the award and administration of all DOT assisted contracts. Additionally it is our commitment to remove any barriers which may impede DBE participation, assist in the development of DBE firms to compete successfully, ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable laws, and implement DBE eligibility standards which are consistent with 49 CFR Parts 23 and 26.
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Certification
In order to comply with our DBE Program, the New Orleans Aviation Board (NOAB) has established a DBE office and has appointed a DBE Liaison Officer (DBELO) to coordinate and administer the program and plan. The first step in the certification process is to complete and submit a DBE application to the DBELO at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The DBELO then conducts a site visit to verify status and issue a decision. The NOAB will certify only those businesses which are at least fifty-one percent (51%) owned and controlled by persons who are socially and economically disadvantaged.
