Minority motor carrier participation in moving government cargo has been minimal. Federal agencies have not formulated affirmative action programs which set specific objectives, goals, and courses of action for increasing the use of minority motor carriers. Progress made has not been periodically evaluated or monitored.

The reason given most often by agency personnel for the low participation was the difficulty in identifying qualified minority carriers. A listing of minority carriers now has been published. Minority carriers cited their lack of awareness of government transportation needs, and problems in obtaining government assistance to prepare the paperwork and satisfy the requirements for securing Federal business as reasons for low participation.
