We provide you with DBE Directories.


We post an updated directory on our website at the beginning of every month.


We publish hard copies every quarter. Call us at (208) 334-4442 or e-mail us if you'd like to be added to our mailing list.

We publicize your "Invitations to Bid."


We post your invitations on our on-line "Invitation to Bid" Bulletin Board.


For ITD projects, we insert "Invitation" copies in plan sets that are distributed to DBEs.



    We identify DBE Non-Bidders Plan Holders List for you.


We print specialized DBE queries for you.


We provide you with customized queries listing DBEs by work items or geographic area. These can be e-mailed or faxed to you.

We help you identify work items for DBE subcontracting.

  We have qualified DBEs in many areas of construction, including paving, steel erection, masonry, electrical, surveying, revegetation, and many more. Plus we have engineers, environmental and public participation consultants and service providers.
