RALEIGH – As the state recovers from the effects of Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the N.C. Department of Transportation is looking for vendors that can clear debris, provide facility support services, furnish necessary supplies and much more.
NCDOT is committed to increasing and expanding diversity participation within the state emergency plan and operations. Certified Disadvantaged, Small, Minority and Woman-owned Business firms interested in disaster response and recovery opportunities should visit the NC Interactive Purchasing System (IPS) to register and have free access to projects in the various affected areas.
For contract opportunities, businesses must own preferred equipment for emergency response, be pre-qualified (for assistance visit Connect NCDOT Business Partner Resources), and have worker’s comp and general liability insurance.
Work opportunities include hauling, clearing & grubbing, removal & demolition, pipe installation, traffic control, tree removal & landscaping, debris removal, cut & shove and more. After becoming prequalified, business owners should contact NCDOT Division Proposal Engineer Vickie P. Gardner (252) 640-6433 or email@example.com to ask about available opportunities.
