The District Department of Transportation lists upcoming procurement opportunities for the public. DDOT also strongly encourages the use of DDOT certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) for contracting and subcontracting opportunities.

The DBE program is required by Congress as a condition for DDOT in order to receive federal funds. The program provides assistance to minorities, women and other socially and economically disadvantaged individuals to enter the highway construction and design industries.
