DBE Compliance

DBE Compliance is ensured IDOT's EEO Contract Compliance Officers.  Compliance is ensured in three main areas of transportation related projects: DBE goal credit, labor and EEO reviews and DBE monitoring.  Compliance Officers supervise the review of contractor operations, payroll, wage compliance, perform periodic project on-site inspections as well as review and approve contract documentation as needed.  They also participate in compliance reviews with state and federal compliance officers, complaint investigations, attend pre-construction conferences, and conduct project pre-bid meetings to inform contractors of EEO and Labor Compliance.

Statewide EEO Contract Compliance Officers can be contacted at the information provided here.

Bulletin Board Requirements

All state and federally funded jobs have certain board requirements that must be posted at the beginning and until the finalizing stages of the project. All prime contractors for every contract let are required to have these posted. They are posted on/adjacent/and at a visible site at all hours of the contract.

Recent changes have been made to the state and federal board requirements. Changes to these requirements can occur frequently due to compliance with regulations and the Department of Labor (DOL). The requirements (links for each poster) are posted on the IDOT website under Doing Business. The information we used to update our bulletin board requirements was found on the IDOL website.

Construction Memorandum No. 6-24 is the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Contract Provisions and District Responsibilities memo. All district EEO as well as IDOT staff use this memorandum adjacent to the IDOL requirements to meet board requirements as well to collect and keep update all information.
