Gaito & Associates, LLC Certified by PennDOT as a DBE

Gaito & Associates, LLC has successfully completed the certification process required for classification as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) under the PA Unified Certification Program (PAUCP).  In March of 1999, the United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) issued a new Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) regulation, 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 26. This regulation requires all Pennsylvania agencies receiving U.S. DOT funding to band together and develop/implement/maintain a Unified Certification Program (UCP) to ensure “one stop shopping” for DBE certification.  DBE certification provides Gaito & Associates with a valuable teaming qualification for larger firms looking to satisfy DBE set-aside requirements for projects receiving federal funding.
