ConnectoDOT – SBDC Program
CDOT uses a competitive bidding process to award contracts to private contractors who in turn are responsible for constructing highway projects. CDOT projects are managed by two primary divisions within CDOT under direction of the Chief Engineer. These departments identify project requirements and then hand them off to the CDOT Contracts and Market Analysis department which puts out the project for bid. Small businesses have many opportunities to work on these projects. For most firms, it is in the form of a subcontract to a larger “prime contractor.”
