As the state recovers from the effects of Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the N.C. Department of Transportation is looking for vendors that can clear debris, provide facility support services, furnish necessary supplies and much more.

NCDOT is committed to increasing and expanding diversity participation within the state emergency plan and operations. Certified Disadvantaged, Small, Minority and Woman-owned Business firms interested in disaster response and recovery opportunities should visit the North Carolina Interactive Purchasing System to register and have free access to projects in the various effected areas.

For contract opportunities, businesses must own preferred equipment for emergency response, be pre-qualified (for assistance visit Connect NCDOT Business Partner Resources), and have worker’s compensation and general liability insurance.

Work opportunities include hauling, clearing and grubbing, removal and demolition, pipe installation, traffic control, tree removal and landscaping, debris removal, cut and shove and more.

After becoming prequalified, business owners should contact NCDOT division proposal engineers to ask about available opportunities.

Contact NCDOT Division 8 located in Moore County at 910-944-2344 or email jstroder@ncdot.gov.
