Commercially Useful Function (CUF)
The DBE Office evaluates the amount of work subcontracted, industry practices, whether the amount the firm is to be paid is commensurate with the work it is actually performing and the DBE credit claimed for the performance of the work, and other relevant factors.
For the entire rule, refer to: 49 CFR 26.55(c), (d).
Good Faith Efforts (GFE)
Good faith efforts are efforts to obtain participation by certified DBEs on the contract. Efforts to include firms not certified as DBEs in the state where the contract is being let are, consequently, not good faith efforts to meet a DBE contract goal. This is true even if a non-certified firm is owned by minorities or women or is certified in another state.
For the entire rule, refer to: 49 CFR 26.53.
If the set contract goal will not be met, please fill out the Documentation of Good Faith Efforts Form and SUBMIT WITH Schedule of Contract Participation (whenever Schedule of Contract Participation is requested).
