Effective September 1, 2014, the New Jersey Unified Certification Program (NJUCP) partners will no longer issue certificates as proof of DBE certification. The certifying partners (NJDOT, PANY/NJ and NJT) will continue to issue certification letters to firms, which include the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes assigned to the firm based on the business activities or services it renders. The DBE firm should retain the letter as proof of DBE certification.
Bidders shall request this letter from the DBE firm(s) and submit with all other required documents in the Bid or Proposal.
If you have any questions pertaining to this change please contact Ms. Lisa-Marie Codrington, Director of Contract Compliance at (973) 491-8941 or Mr. L. A. Hernández, Manager, Certification and Outreach at (973) 491-7530.
