Highway Construction Training and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program: Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Report

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regulations for the On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program require the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to establish apprenticeship and training programs that assist women, minorities and disadvantaged persons in gaining entry-level positions in the construction trades. The objective of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program is to increase the participation of women and minority-owned small businesses in the award and performance of U.S. Department of Transportation-assisted contracts. MnDOT’s annual FHWA-approved On-the-Job Training goal was 190 trainees in calendar year 2019 and 2020. The actual number of minority and women OJT trainees approved for the program was 192 in 2019 and 196 in 2020. MnDOT’s statewide DBE participation on federally funded transportation projects was 10.5 percent for FFY 2019 and 8.1 percent for FFY 2020, compared to a statewide annual goal of 12.2 percent. This report is prepared in response to Minn. Stat. 174.03, Subd.10 and 11. A report is required by Feb. 1 of each odd-numbered year. This report covers 2019 and 2020. It is current as of January 2021.
