From ongoing operations to capital projects, DART is a major consumer of products and services and an economic engine in North Texas.
To submit a bid or proposal, a supplier must register online with DART. The agency notifies registered suppliers of opportunities based on self-selected commodity codes. Although not a guarantee, adhering to the following steps will help in submitting a competitive bid or proposal:
Upcoming Procurement Opportunities is a list of commodity, service, professional service, and/or construction requirements DART expects to issue, as a formal solicitation, normally within 30 to 60 days from the date of posting.
It is DART’s policy that disadvantaged, minority and/or women-owned business enterprises have fair and equitable opportunity to participate in DART procurements.
If you are a D/M/WBE interested in participating in DART procurements but have not yet been certified, you may contact the North Texas Regional Certification Agency for assistance in obtaining certification.
Once prime contractors commit to meet D/M/WBE subcontracting goals, EO works with them to ensure success towards meeting their commitments. This involves periodic reviews with both the prime and D/M/WBE subcontractors.
To assist with D/M/WBE networking, DART staff attend trade fairs and community events, and provides listings of potential prime contractors, notices of bid/proposal conferences (frequented by prime contractors) to D/M/WBEs; and listing of certified D/M/WBEs interested in subcontracting to potential prime contractors.
