Mark your calendars: minority-, woman- and small-business owners interested in participating on transportation contracts are invited to attend multiple opportunity forums being held across the state in late January and early February.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is working to ensure equal opportunities exist through its Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. During the opportunity forums, participants will hear information about upcoming local construction projects and the benefits of the DBE program certification and assistance.
The forums also provide a venue for participants to meet with WSDOT project staff and network with contractors.
Forum location and schedule:
5 – 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 27
WSDOT Maintenance Facility, conference room
11211 41st Ave. SW, Lakewood
