NTTA Welcomes 2016-2018 Road Program Participants

The ROAD program provides opportunities for new and emerging disadvantaged minority/woman-owned business enterprises (D/M/WBE) to partner with established firms in a mentor/protégé program designed to enhance technical and industry knowledge to better compete for procurement opportunities at NTTA and similar regional entities.
“As you can imagine, this provides an abundance of opportunities for these consultants. It also strengthens NTTA’s commitment to increase opportunities for diversity participation in construction and professional service procurements,” said NTTA Director of Business Diversity Anthony Coleman.

This is NTTA’s fourth class since the program’s inception in 2009. To date, 30 teams have completed the program. One consultant that previously participated as a protégé will now serve as a mentor, the ideal path of a ROAD program participant.
