Vision: To create a compliant transportation model that promotes innovative
management concepts and techniques that will become the standard for the state transportation systems.
Mission: To ensure that the Alabama Department of Transportation adheres to the legal mandates that govern the operational functions associated with the administration of the Civil Rights Programs. The obligation to not discriminate is based on the objective of Congress to not have funds which were collected in a non-discriminatory manner used in ways which subsidize, promote, or perpetuate discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
The Compliance and Business Opportunities Bureau operates under the management of Deputy Director of
Administration, Lamar S. Woodham, Jr. The Bureau was established on April 1, 2013 as a result of the
separation of the Personnel and Compliance Bureau which had previously merged in February 2006. The
Bureau is now under the day-to-day direction of Bureau Chief, Clarence H. Hampton whose responsibility is
to ensure the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is in full compliance with all related federal
and state nondiscriminatory laws, regulations, directives, and executive orders in all of its programs and
activities. The Bureau is designed to maintain the administration of a continuous Equal Employment
Opportunity (EEO)/Affirmative Action Program for ALDOT regarding EEO requirements.
The Compliance and Business Opportunities Bureau is organized into four operational Sections:
Administration, Internal Programs, External Programs, and the Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE).
