Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:. The Consultant will recruit ten DBEs to participate in the DBE SS Program and will increase their business contacts and networks, improve each firm's ability to estimate, bid, and negotiate contracts. Many of our underutilized DBEs are based in Western Massachusetts, specifically in Springfield. Consequently one of the two workshops series will take place in the greater Springfield area. The other workshop series will be based in the greater Boston area. MassDOT met with Springfield-based businesses to gain a better understanding of the key challenges faced by highway-related businesses in the greater Springfield area. These included the following:The challenge obtaining information about bidding opportunities;The relatively few opportunities to network meet with local primes looking for subcontractors;The insular nature of the transportation construction industry;The need for step-by-step guidance on how a small business can successfully network with a prime contractor;The Difficulty obtaining financing; andThe Difficulty purchasing/leasing necessary equipment.
