In April 2019, ODOT convened a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)/On-the-Job Training (OJT) meet and greet with the Community Opportunity Advisory Committee (COAC). Event objectives included:
- Orient ourselves on I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project goals, timelines, unique characteristics and expected outcomes.
- Collectively determine our shared understanding of DBE and OJT and other key terms.
- Review proposed committee guiding principles and charter and offer feedback.
- Understand parameters for the project-specific DBE and OJT program.
