Supportive Services

INDOT’s Supportive Services Program has two components, DBE Supportive Services and OJT Supportive Services.  For information about OJT Supportive Services, please see our Contract Compliance page.   

DBE Supportive Services

  • DBE Supportive Services is the education and outreach piece of the overall EOD program.  The DBE Supportive Services Team is responsible for:
    • Raising awareness of the program
    • Recruiting new potential DBE’s
    • Provide educational programming for potential and existing DBE's
    • Establishing and maintaining inter-agency relationships
    • Partnering with FAA and FTA sister agencies to meet their own DBE needs and maximize DBE contracting opportunities
    • Maintaining an awareness of ongoing projects for EOD staff and DBE firms so we may all work to maximize contracting opportunities for our DBE’s

Sponsoring educational events for current and potential DBE’s to help prepare their companies to successfully compete in the transportation marketplace.
