Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs)

DBE & ACDBE Goals

As a system of airports, we have connected our people and our communities to the world for nearly 70 years – we appreciate and value the differences of culture, people and perspectives. Diversity, equity and inclusion are not just words; they are core principles, driven into every action we take and decision we make.

We are setting out to change the paradigm of how we connect with our businesses, contractors, and partners. We are building linkages with our community to ensure contracting, bidding and concessions opportunities at ACAA are driven by equity-based principles and processes. We know the barriers to entry for small businesses, women and people of color are many. We plan to break them down. We are moving past words and into actions. We are setting not just DBE/ACDBE goals. We want to see the people and the diversity of cultures of this region when we see the people who work at the airport.

In fulfillment of the requirements of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations Part 26 (49 CFR Part 26), the Allegheny County Airport Authority has developed a proposed Overall DBE Goal for FFY 2023-2025 for FAA-funded projects at the Pittsburgh International Airport and the Allegheny County Airport. A public meeting was held on September 16, 2022, to review the methodology used to calculate the proposed goal; the meeting’s presentation is available for review.
