The Kentucky Transportation
Cabinet has established a DBE reciprocity agreement with Indiana DOT for
statewide projects allowing DBE’s certified in either Kentucky or Indiana
to be used for any transportation federal aid project in the partner state. We are
also in an agreement with Ohio DOT only for the Brent Spence Brigde
Project. However, we don't have an automatic reciprocity agreement with other
states. DBEs interested in certification in other regions must adhere to
the Interstate DBE Certification outlined in 49 CFR 26.85. It's crucial to note
that all DBE firms performing work on bid items, should be prequalified
with the Cabinet. This prequalification is contingent on both the firm's and
the individual's professional experience and qualifications. Currently the reciprocity agreement Kentucky has
with Ohio is limited exclusively to the Brent Spence Bridge. Please note
that DBE’s will need to follow the project State’s prequalification laws. For the most up to date list
of DBE’s certified in INDIANA please click here: Indiana DBE Directory
