BEPs IN ALASKA & OREGON
In January 2019, the Northwest Small Business Transportation Resource Center (NW SBTRC) conducted a Bonding Education Program (BEP) workshop in Portland, Oregon with the Oregon Department of Transportation. In February 2019, the NW SBTRC partnered with Alaska DOT, and AGC of Alaska to conduct a 2-day BEP workshop, during the 16th Annual Alaska DBE & Subcontractor’s Conference. The target audience for these programs included minority and woman-owned, small & emerging contractors/consultants, 8(a) firm, and Alaskan Native American firms in the transportation field, who are seeking to increase their business capacity and run their operation more effectively. There were more than 100 attendees for the Alaska event alone!
