Economic Opportunity Division’s DBE Certification area is going green! Notices to DBEs reflecting their DBE certification status will now be delivered by email. Reminders to submit your Annual Update information will no longer come as letters delivered by the postal service. Instead, you will receive these notices through email as well. DBEs can update their bidder registration profile by logging into Business Registration Number/Bidders Registration under Certification Resources. Because your email program may not recognize messages from INDOT, please check your spam/junk mail folders for these notices. It is your responsibility to know when your update information is due and submit it in a timely fashion, but we understand your appreciation for the reminders and we are glad to continue this service. Note that failure to submit Annual Update information as required will result in an email notification proposing to remove your DBE certification. If you have any questions about your DBE certification status or the annual update process/requirements , feel free to contact Kimberly Sons, INDOT’s DBE Certification Coordinator, at (317) 234-8087 or email@example.com.
