In 1999, the U.S. Department of
Transportation mandated that each state develop a
Unified Certification Program.

In 2003, the Louisiana Unified Certification
Program (LAUCP) was implemented and is now in
full operation.

LA UCP Regions
LA DOTD is the only Certifying Agency that can

Region 2, it can choose to either apply to one of
the agencies in that Region, or with LA
DOTD. Out of state firms can apply to any of the
4 Certifying Agencies.
10
LA UCP
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and
Development has signed agreements with other DOT
Recipients within the state to handle issues
relative to DBE Certification. These recipients,
are required to accept and be bound by this UCP
Agreement. Because of this, only firms that are
certified with the LA UCP can be counted towards
DBE goals.

    then be added to the
  • LA UCP DBE Directory.
  • If a firm is denied certification, you will be
    notified by letter detailing the specific
    reasons for the denial. Appeal rights will be
    included in the letter. A firm that is denied
    certification can appeal that decision to the
    U.S. Department of Transportation within 90
    days.
  • If a firm is denied, they may not reapply for
    12 months.

18
RECERTIFICATION AND ANNUAL AFFIDAVITS
  • A firm is certified for a period of 3 years.
    Once every 3 years, a recertification application
    will be forwarded to the firm. This application
    must be completed and returned to our office in
    order for your firm to be recertified.
  • During this 3 year period, a firm is required
    to complete an Annual Affidavit stating that
    there have been no changes in the firms
    ownership and/or control. This Affidavit will be
    forwarded to the firm on an annual basis.
