Small Business Set-Aside Pilot Program

 

PennDOT is committed to increasing contract participation for small businesses, disadvantaged businesses and diverse businesses. Continuing with this effort, PennDOT has introduced a Small Business Set Aside pilot program for Small Business Enterprises (SBE) to compete as prime consultants on federally-assisted Preliminary Engineering and Final Design agreements.

For the pilot program, seven (7) preliminary engineering and final design of non-complex box culvert or single span bridge replacements projects have been identified and deemed as Small Business Set-Side projects. The pilot program will begin in October 2018 and will run to project completion.
