The ODOT Office of Civil Rights utilizes an annual Outreach Events Calendar which is comprised of key chambers of commerce, community, and professional organizations that are involved with small firms. ODOT attended the various meetings, marketplace events, trade shows and conferences listed on the Calendar throughout the past year and encouraged public comments on the DBE triennial goal and the goal setting methodology. The major events for small businesses were the Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs (OAME) Annual Conference
& Trade Show, the Hispanic Metro Chamber of Commerce Tradeshow and the MED Week Trade Show and Luncheon. Other small business events were monthly Contractor and A & E meetings at OAME, the ACEC/ODOT Conference, and the Latino Business & Workforce Development Conference. ODOT/OCR staff is available for conversations and comments by phone and e- mail. No written comments regarding the DBE goal setting methodology were received; however, goals were a topic of discussion at various meetings during the year. Additional meetings:
In years 2014, 2015 and 2016, Intermodal Civil Rights hosted "Doing Business with Transit" events in several areas of the state. Transit service providers were asked to provide upcoming projects to the many small businesses in attendance. Certification information was provided by COBID.
"Connect to Oregon" (C2O) events were conducted in Eastern Oregon to help small businesses become aware of contracting opportunities.
A Transit DBE Consortium was developed in 2015. The membership included urban transit systems, i.e. TriMet, Salem-Kaiser Transit, Lane Transit District, and Rogue Valley Transit District. Through Intermodal Civil Rights, the group will share lessons learned and provide assistance to the non-urban systems.
ODOT Civil Rights staff attended the DBE Academy, held in Portland, Oregon on July 26 – 28, 2016.
Similar meetings and outreach events have been continued through FFYs 2015, 2016, 2017 and are a significant part of the continuing work ODOT does for the DBE Program.
