DBE Certification: Arizona Unified Certification Program (AZUCP)
The Arizona Unified Certification Program (UCP) has been established to allow multiple agencies to utilize the same certification process statewide for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs). The UCP simplifies the DBE application process between multiple agencies, and provides reciprocity for DBEs between the City of Tucson, City of Phoenix, and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT).
These three entities are members of the Arizona Unified Certification Program. A DBE database has been developed that encompasses all DBE firms that have been certified by these entities.
To participate in the Arizona Unified Certification Program, a business must be certified or must obtain certification as a disadvantaged business through the City of Tucson, City of Phoenix, or ADOT.
City of Phoenix has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program in accordance with the regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT),
49 CFR Part 26 (link is external). As a condition of receipt of funding, City of Phoenix has signed an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26.
