Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Outreach

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
 
 
​​

The N.C. Department of Transportation's Division of Highways in partnership with its Office of Civil Rights started hosting regional outreach events for all 14 highway divisions. If you own a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBEs) — whether a small, woman-owned or minority-owned business —​ NCDOT wants to work with you.

Hundreds of firms representing all types of industries participated in the first several events held on Saturdays since June 2021. ​The next round of events are scheduled for October 22, 2022. 

​NCDOT's Division of Highways advertises and awards numerous contracts each year for all sorts of transportation work. Each project is an opportunity for NCDOT to encourage DBE participation and provide equitable and balanced access for these businesses to compete on contracts.

NCDOT has multiple contract opportunities statewide, including:

  • Construction
  • Maintenance
  • Emergency work
  • Mowing
  • Traffic control
  • Tree service
  • Cleaning service
  • Litter pickup
  • Dead animal removal

It is important to NCDOT to collaborate with DBEs. As such, the department is extending an invitation to all certified firms​ to do business and learn more about the opportunities available.

Do Business with NCDOT

NCDOT is hosting regional outreach events for disadvantaged business enterprises statewide Oct. 22. Events will be held at seven offices, each of which will host people in two highway divisions.     

Highway Division staff will be on hand during these events to help the owners of small, minority or woman-owned firms learn about how they can do business with NCDOT. These outreach​ events are being organized by the Division of Highways in partnership with NCDOT's Office of Civil Rights. 

NCDOT is asking people to RSVP the appropriate highway division contact below if you would like to attend an event near you.​
