DSBO assigns goals to all city construction projects. Depending on the project, these goals may include Small Business Enterprises (SBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE), Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), and Women Business Enterprises (WBE).

Factors considered before setting goals include the known availability and the capacity of certified firms in specific industry groups.
