Texas Unified Certification Program

The Texas Unified Certification Program is a certification process for the Federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Programs in Texas. A business' DBE certification is valid at any Texas entity that receives U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) funds and has a DBE Program. (See TUCP Participating Entities below.)

Small businesses desiring DBE certification must submit an application and personal net worth statement to one of six certifying agencies within the state. The business' location determines which agency to contact.

Firms certified by each of the six agencies are included in one consolidated and centralized DBE Directory. The TUCP is required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Benefits of DBE Certification through TUCP include:

  • Listing your business in a central DBE Directory
  • Receiving a Federal DBE Program certificate
  • Bidding as a DBE at all participating state entities for all DOT transportation modes including aviation, highways, and public transportation
