Supportive Service Programs

DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE SUPPORTIVE SERVICES (DBE/SS)
The primary purpose of the DBE/SS is to provide training, assistance, and services to DBEs certified in the DBE program. The goal is to increase their activity in the program and facilitate the firms' development into viable, self-sufficient organizations capable of competing for, and performing on Federally- assisted highway projects.

FHWA annually apportions the DBE/SS funds to Caltrans for the purpose of carrying out a DBE/SS program. The FHWA approves the funding of Caltrans programs only if they demonstrate the ability to directly assist certified DBE’s development through identifiable, metric-based results.

ON THE JOB TRAINING SUPPORTIVE SERVICES (OJT/SS)
Caltrans’ OJT/SS Program provides pre-apprenticeship training to increase the participation of women, minorities, and other disadvantaged individuals in skilled and semi-skilled crafts on federal-aid highway construction contracts.   Services are provided on a contracted basis.  This report summarizes OJT/SS activities and is produced annually when there is a contract in place.
