ON-THE-JOB TRAINING SUPPORTIVE SERVICES STATEMENT OF WORK 2013

The On the Job Training (OJT) and OJT Supportive Services (OJT/SS) Program was established by 23 U.S.C. 140(b).  Pursuant to these requirements, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) requires contractors awarded Federally-Assisted road building contracts to set aside a certain amount of on-the-job training and apprenticeship slots and hours for women, minorities and other disadvantaged individuals. 

OJT/SS funds are allocated to states to assist in developing and implementing an approved, cost effective and meaningful OJT/SS program.  FHWA is soliciting FY2013 OJT/SS Statements of Work (SOWS) from State Transportation Agencies (STAs) to recruit, train and employ disadvantaged individuals, minorities and women in the Federal-Aid highway construction industry and in transportation-related careers.

At the request of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), KYTC will submit an OJT Supportive Services Statement of Work for the Federal Fiscal Year 2013-14 on November 15, 2013.  The FHWA will be allocating funding to all states based on a federal funding formula. The amount is yet to be determined.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM SUPPORTIVE SERVICES STATEMENT OF WORK 2013   

The DBE Supportive Services (DBE/SS) Program was established by 23 CFR 230.201-207, Subpart B in an effort to provide training, assistance and services to DBE firms certified in the DBE program so as to increase their activity in the program, and to facilitate the firms’ development into viable, self-sufficient organizations capable of competing for, and performing on federally assisted highway projects. 

DBE/SS funds are allocated to states to assist in developing and implementing an approved, cost effective and meaningful DBE/SS program.  FHWA is soliciting FY2013 DBE/SS Statements of Work (SOWS) from State Transportation Agencies (STAs) to recruit, train and employ disadvantaged individuals, minorities and women in the Federal-Aid highway construction industry and in transportation-related careers.

At the request of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), KYTC will submit a DBE Supportive Services Statement of Work for the Federal Fiscal Year 2013-14 on November 15, 2013.  The FHWA will now be allocating funding to all states based on a federal funding formula.
