A STUDY OF MINORITY BUSINESS PARTICIPATION IN THE URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY VOLUME II--DEVELOPING SUCCESSFUL MINORITY BUSINESS ENTERPRISE PROGRAMS FOR PUBLIC TRANSIT PROPERTIES: A MANUAL

UMTA's Office of Civil Rights (UCR) commissioned this 3-volumed study to establish a data base on the current level of Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) participation in the planning, development, and implementation of transit systms and to recommend changes in enforcement strategies in order to substantilly increase MBE participation. This manual, Volume II, provides guidelines for mass transit properties on developing an effective MBE program. Information and recommendations are provided on the use of transit planning and programming tools in planning the MBE program, goal setting mechanisms, MBE subcontract requirements of prime contractors, communications procedures, staffing needs, and recordkeeping and monitoring methods. This Manual reflects UMTA's Office of Civil Rights' requirements for transit property grantees. These requirements were instituted to implement the Revised Title VI Order issued in 1977. The Appendices contain: Annual Report Form, Quarterly Report Form, Sample Bid Work Sheet, List of MBE Liaison Officers, National Trade and Professional Associations, and Minority Contractors and Technical Assistance Organizations. /Author/
