Civil Rights/Affirmative Action
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) provides its employees, its contractors, the business community and the public with equal
employment opportunities, environmental justice, business development opportunities for the disadvantaged and fair wage rate practices in a
suitable work climate.
NJDOT is responsible for meeting these goals and complying with federal and state anti-discrimination and anti-harassment
policies and regulations.
Through its Title VI /Environmental Justice office,
NJDOT monitors the nondiscrimination policy with positive environmental effects in its projects.
Disadvantaged business owners (minorities and women) who want to bid on federal or state projects can benefit through the
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) office that channels
small business information for the
U.S. Department of Transportation. Applicants can access specific contact and application information,
forms, instructions and a checklist online.
The Contract Compliance office ensures that contractors will follow mandated federal and state Equal Employment
Opportunity provisions; the Wage Rate office ensures they will comply with federal and state wage rate laws, rules and
NJDOT publications about Civil Rights/AA programs and policies are
