KINSTON, NC – Small, women-owned and disadvantaged business owners looking to learn how to compete for state transportation contracts are invited to attend a free workshop on Feb. 19 in Lenoir County.

The NC Department of Transportation hosts another round of information meetings aimed at disadvantaged businesses, which include small businesses and those run by minorities or women. Many small businesses may not be familiar with the hiring and allocation process and how to become pre-qualified as a subcontractor.

NCDOT is looking for more companies that can perform contract work such as mowing the lawn, collecting waste at the roadside, snow clearing, traffic control, road construction and maintenance.

The personal workshop will be from kl. 10 a.m. for dinner at NC Division 2 headquarters at 2815 Rouse Road Extension in Kinston.

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

Any business owner or representative wishing to attend should contact Mary Margaret Herring at 252-775-6100 or [email protected] In addition, journalists are welcome to come to the workshop and interview people.

NCDOT’s Chief Engineer’s Office and the department’s Office of Civil Rights began organizing the quarterly outreach events last year for disadvantaged businesses. Visit this NCDOT page to learn more about the disadvantaged outreach initiative for businesses.
