Please note that effective August 1, 2013, the California UCP (including Caltrans) is no longer issuing DBE Certificates as evidence of certification. A copy of a printout from the database should be sufficient proof of a firm's certification. Prime contractors and awarding agencies should not impose on DBE firms the burden of providing a DBE certificate in their bid packages - it is not required.
