Dave Keen presented the basics on disparities studies and how they help state DOTs defend implementation of the Federal DBE Program. He answered questions that state and local agencies often asked: (a) What are disparity studies? (b) What would I do with one if I had one? (c) How much do they cost, how quickly are they done, and what does a state DOT have to do?
David Keen of Keen Independent has performed disparity studies for more than 100 state and local governments and has testified as an expert witness about studies and the DBE Program.
