DBE Utilization Plan

CECS is a SCDOT certified DBE/WBE firm and we are proud to support other DBE/WBE firms.  We have an established track record with governmental agencies with respect to the participation of DBE firms on our projects. Also, CECS has been a protégé for other programs.


CECS has the willingness and experience to provide guidance and technical expertise to a protégé firm.  CECS is mentoring Maxim Communications in the area of public involvement and business development for the SC-153 Extension project in Pickens County.  This is the first project for implementation of the Mentor-Protégé Program. CECS consistently meets and exceeds the Department’s DBE utilization goals without outside assistance; however, CECS recognizes the benefits of partnering with other DBE firms by providing them with opportunities to excel in the transportation engineering industry.
