When Good Faith Efforts (GFE) Go Wrong

We recently had a local agency reject an apparent low bidder due to an insufficient GFE.  The local agency did such a great job of documenting their evaluation that we wanted to provide a “washed” version of their Memorandum to File as an example.  Please contact our District DBE Coordinator, Jim Day at (530) 741-5116 for any DBE/UDBE questions or issues.
