Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
The Salt Lake City Department of Airports (SLCDA) is committed to increasing the opportunities to involve disadvantaged, minority and women-owned firms in all airport business prospects. All airport contracts and concession agreements incorporate policies, procedures and clauses regarding specific Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concessionaire DBE (ACDBE) requirements. SLCDA operates three airports, Salt Lake City International (SLC), Tooele Valley Airport (TVA), and the South Valley Regional Airport (SVA).
The DBE Coordinator Airport Senior Planner conducts outreach programs to promote and ensure local, small and disadvantaged business participation in Airport concession leases and contracts (e.g. construction and professional services). The SLCDA contracting opportunities include construction, architectural and design engineering, retail shops, restaurants, management consulting and procurement services. For a comprehensive list of available opportunities, visit the Salt Lake City Purchasing website.
