Emerging Small Business (ESB)
Mission Statement

The Oregon Department of Transportation strongly encourages, and is committed to, the participation of Emerging Small Businesses (ESB's) in contracting opportunities. The mission of the Emerging Small Business Program is to create new and innovative contracting opportunities for Oregon's small business community. It's also a goal of the program to assist emerging small businesses in overcoming barriers to participating in the state's extensive public contracting procurement programs.

As with every program, ODOT's policy is not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex and/or national origin when awarding and administering those contracts.
