DBE Notification & Reporting Service (available in PA)

A number of funding sources (grants, loans, etc.) require notification of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) as part of the bidding process. Among others, “DBEs” are comprised of “MBEs” and “WBEs.” This process can be cumbersome, time consuming, and requires accuracy and extensive documentation. Many agencies do not do this frequently, and therefore spend additional time and energy ensuring they complete it correctly and do not jeopardize their funding.

PennBid is proud to offer a unique service that completes the required DBE notifications in a manner consistent with the requirements of most funding agencies – at no cost. Unlike most agencies and design firms, PennBid does this on a regular basis, giving us considerable experience to ensure the owners obligations are satisfied. PennBid provides a final report documenting the outreach efforts, response rates, and other details that can be sent to the funding agency.
