All California based U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) recipient agencies, including the Metro, participate in the California Unified Certification Program (CUCP). This U.S. DOT approved program provides "one-stop shopping" for eligible businesses seeking DBE certification. Under the CUCP, a firm certified by just one of California's 140-plus U.S. DOT recipient agencies is eligible to participate as a DBE statewide.
The CUCP went into effect January 1, 2002.
The CUCP is organized into two geographic “Clusters.” Each Cluster consists of a small group of U.S. DOT recipient agencies that process DBE certification applications submitted by applicant businesses located within a Cluster. These agencies are known as CUCP "Certifying Members." The Certifying Member processing a certification application for a firm is identified as that firm's "Home Agency."
