Distinguishing DBA vs. DBRA

  • DBA projects: an agency of the federal government or the District of Columbia signs the contract. Such as:
    1. Department of Veterans Affairs.
    2. General Services Administration.
    3. Department of Defense.
    4. Department of the Interior.
  • DBRA projects: a non-federal agency or grant recipient, rather than the federal government signs the construction contract. For example:
    1. On a Department of Housing and Urban Development assisted project, a local housing authority or a city or town may sign the construction contract.
    2. On an Environmental Protection Agency funded contract for a sewer project, a local public works/water-sewer authority may sign the construction contract.
    3. On an interstate highway project, a state highway department signs a contract for highway construction.
