ON-THE-JOB TRAINING SUPPORTIVE SERVICES STATEMENT OF WORK 2012
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 FY2012 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 submitted an OJT Supportive Services Statement of Work for the Federal Fiscal Year 2012-13 on April 16, 2012. The FHWA will now be allocating funding to all states based on a federal funding formula, the amount is yet to be determined.
