NORTH CAROLINA - Targeted information on how to compete for state transportation contracts will be available Feb. 19 in Charlotte, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

NCDOT is looking for small business owners as well as female or minority owned business owners who want to learn more about competing for state contracts to participate in a workshop.

"Many small businesses may not be familiar with the letting and award process and how to become prequalified as a subcontractor," NCDOT stated in a release.

Specifically, NCDOT is looking for more companies that can perform contract work such as mowing, roadside litter pickup, snow removal, traffic control, road construction and maintenance.

The in-person workshop will be from 10 a.m. to noon at the Metrolina Regional Transportation Management Center at 2327 Tipton Drive in Charlotte.

The department will adhere to COVID safety protocols such as social distancing and face coverings during the workshop.

Any business owner or representative wishing to attend should RSVP Terry Burleson at 704-983-4400 or twburleson@ncdot.gov.

NCDOT's Chief Engineer's Office and the department's Office of Civil Rights began organizing the quarterly outreach events last year for disadvantaged business enterprises. To learn more about the disadvantaged business enterprise outreach initiative, visit this NCDOT page.
