NCDOT Statewide Disparity Study Informational Meeting Series Begins January 29th

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (“NCDOT”) desires to engage in equitable procurement with all businesses in its market area. To accomplish this, NCDOT has contracted with Griffin & Strong, P.C. (“GSPC”) to conduct a Disparity Study that will analyze business availability and NCDOT spending with Minority, Women (“M/WBE”) and other Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (“DBE”).

With future contract opportunities on the horizon and a desire to be inclusive of the local and diverse business community, NCDOT invites business owners, organizations, community members and advocates to an informational meeting series to learn how their input can help NCDOT ensure that all sectors of the business community are represented in its future spending; including prime contractors, subcontractors, M/WBE and DBE firms.
