Office of Outreach
The Office of Outreach initiates and coordinates outreach efforts including promoting certification and prequalification of Small and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (S&DBE) firms. The office also meets with certified, newly certified and prospective S&DBE firms to promote available services (e.g. technical training, tuition reimbursement programs, formal education courses) and discuss eligibility for prequalification to bid on highway construction and local public agency projects.
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will be implementing new procedures concerning DBE materials and supplies vendors (MSVs) effective September 1, 2018. This workshop will provide information on the upcoming changes.
