How to Build Your Business Capacity with the U.S. Department of Transportation

The DOT’s mission is to serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life of the American people.

In doing so, the DOT spends over $1 billion annually on products and services provided by small businesses. Bids are surprisingly diverse.  In addition to the typical construction and engineering projects, you’ll find requests for:

  • Educational services
  • Office equipment
  • Copywriting
  • Data base management
  • Technical & professional services

Agencies that fall under the DOT include the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration and the Maritime Administration.

Join the US Department of Transportation – Mid-Atlantic Regional Small Business Transportation Resource Center (MA-SBTRC) at this FREE workshop focused on key concepts and strategies for increasing capacity building for your small businesses. If you desire or are ready to “go to the next level,” you won’t want to miss this presentation designed to get you there.
