Rampart_BannerThe Regional Transit Authority will host a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Workshop from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3, in the RTA Board Room, 2817 Canal Street.

The program is designed to share information and examples of potential contracting opportunities associated with future RTA Rail Projects and will include a presentation about DBE subcontractors and their roles on the current North Rampart Street/St. Claude Avenue Streetcar Project. A representative from Transdev, the company that manages the transit operations in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish, will also address the attendees.

“This is not a DBE certification program; this is for the benefit of registered DBEs, or those in the process of becoming certified, so they will have the information they need to compete for these projects,” said Program Manager for Rail Expansion and Capital Projects Martin Pospisil.

Due to limited space, RSVPs are requested.  Call 504-577-2668 or email Trene@intheevent.us to reserve a space. More information will be posted to www.norta.com as the date approaches.
