Supportive Services Programs

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) has undertaken an aggressive stance in regards to developing a program to provide technical expertise and management training to business entities that qualify as Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE). The primary goal of the DBE program is to increase the level of DBE participation in the highway construction industry. To achieve this goal, ALDOT has contracted with Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) as well as other universities throughout the State of Alabama. 

ALDOT has entered into various contractual agreements with Alabama A&M University (HBCU), Tuskegee University (HBCU), University of Alabama at Birmingham, University of Alabama in Huntsville, and the University of West Alabama. The agreements basically ensure that the institutions will provide technical and management assistance, in conjuncture with workshops and classroom training, to certified DBEs and potential DBE certified firms. The assistance is designed to enhance the DBE’s skills and knowledge in the transportation and highway construction industry and aid them in becoming viable independent contractors.
