Learn how your firm can work with ODOT, helping us provide safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place.

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) supports the state highway system and promotes transportation initiatives statewide.  As a more than $3 billion per year enterprise, ODOT invests the bulk of its resources in system preservation through maintenance, construction, and snow and ice operations. With a mission to provide safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place, we rely on an extensive network of consultants, contractors, subcontractors, and goods and services providers. That could include you!

How your firm can do business with ODOT depends on the work that you'd like to provide for the department. Firms performing professional services related to the design and inspection of heavy highway projects, for example, will work with ODOT's Office of Consultant Services. Construction firms, meanwhile, will work with ODOT's Office of Contracts.

  • Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Goals
    • Federally Funded Highway Project
  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Set-Aside
    • Federally Funded Highway Project
  • Encouraging Diversity, Growth & Equity (EDGE) Goals
