TxDOT’s TBOD Program works to increase disadvantaged-owned business participation in the highway construction industry. The Program provides DBE’s with firm specific training and guidance to help them become competitive within the heavy highway or construction marketplace. TxDOT’s TBOD programs prepare DBE’s to move into non-traditional areas of work and to compete in the marketplace outside the DBE program.

The TBOD Program provides networking opportunities, project matching assistance between subcontractors and primes, and access to training in the areas of business development, business management, and construction management. Services include:

  • Classroom and workshop components
  • Industry technical assistance
  • Vendor events
  • Industry partnering at the local, state, and federal levels

Current Providers:

  • Del Mar College
  • Prairie View A&M
  • Texas Southern University
