Civil Rights for Nevada State Transportation Activities

The External Civil Rights section of the Nevada Department of Transportation is dedicated to ensuring equal opportunity for all individuals and businesses in NDOT programs, services and activities.  Read more below about the different ways we organize this work.

Equal Employment Opportunities and Title VI

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on federally-funded programs. NDOT is committed to full compliance with Title VI and all related nondiscrimination laws, regulations and executive orders and directives. NDOT assures that no person or business shall be excluded from any NDOT program, service or activity on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, age or disability.  For  more information, see Title VI/EEO on our Civil Rights section web site.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

NDOT’s External Civil Rights Division administers the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program and the certification process for DBE applicants. Through this program, our staff works with qualified businesses owned by women, minorities and disadvantaged individuals to help them successfully bid as prime contractors or subcontractors on federally-funded highway construction projects. For  more information on the DBE program, see our Civil Rights section web site.

NDOT's disparity study helps develop the information needed to effectively operate the disadvantaged business enterprise program. You can read and comment on the draft disparity study through the disparity study webpage.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance

The ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. NDOT will ensure that qualified individuals shall not, solely on the basis of their disability, be excluded from the participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination under any of its programs, services or activities as provided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). For more information on NDOT’s compliance with the ADA and how to file a complaint, click here or email us at ADAProgram@dot.state.nv.us.  Persons with or without a disability may file a complaint under the ADA.

Contract Compliance

NDOT’s Contract Compliance unit is responsible for recipients’ (i.e. contractors) compliance with federal and state wage laws, rules and regulations as they pertain to federally-assisted  highway construction contracts. This includes prevailing wage information and related procedures. In addition, Contract Compliance handles contractor and sub-contractor registration, requests to sublet and utilize service providers, the commercially useful function checklist and more.  For forms and additional information, see Contract Compliance information in our Civil Rights section web site or email us at contractcompliance@dot.state.nv.us.
