Oregon Department of Transportation Disparity Study
Donaldson Enterprises collected anecdotal information and participated in public meetings as a sub-consultant on the ODOT Disparity Study.
We served as as sub-consultant to Keen Independent Research on this 2016 study. We participated in internal and external stakeholders meetings for the duration of the project and conducted in-depth interviews with business owners throughout the state of Oregon.
Scope of work includes:
- Scheduling interviews
- Conducting interviews with business owners and other public organizations
- Travel to and from interviews
- Tape recording interviews and preparing summaries as appropriate
- Prepare monthly progress reports
The Oregon Department of Transportation Disparity Study analyzed whether there is a level playing field for minority-and women-owned firms in the Oregon transportation contracting industry and in its own contracts. This information helped ODOT operate the Federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program for its federally-funded contracts.
