10/21 - US DOT Opportunity Zones Program Webinar

The United States Department of Transportation's (DOT) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) invites you to participate at the Department's “Opportunity Zones Program” Webinar to be held on Monday, October 21st, 2019. The webinar will start promptly at 2:00 pm, EST.

OSDBU's mission is to ensure that small business concerns have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in DOT procurement opportunities as prime contractors and subcontractors. For the last ten years, the Department has received, at a minimum, an “A” rating in SBA Scorecard for its small business achievements. As a continuing effort to promote procurement opportunities within DOT, we are hosting a webinar for the opportunity zone where firms and investors alike can be exposed to the importance and benefits of the program.

Here’s what you can learn:

  • Overview of Opportunity Zones program

  • DOT role in the program

  • Potential benefits to small businesses

John Kramer, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Budget and Programs, Office of the Secretary of Transportation, will provide an overview of the program’s mission, how small businesses can take advantage of the program, and the prospects that exist within it.
