OJT Supportive Service Funds
Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has received $60,475.00 in On-The-Job Training Supportive Services (OJT/SS) funding from the Federal Highway Administration and is seeking solicitation for these funds. These funds are meant to increase the effectiveness of approved on-the-job training programs, particularly their effectiveness in providing meaningful training opportunities for minorities, women, and the disadvantaged on Federal-aid highway projects. The performance period will run for one year, July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020. MDT's Statement of Work (SOW) and Solicitation Notice contain more information about the program requirements. SOW's must be emailed to by May 28, 2019.
The On-the-Job Training Supportive Service (OJT/SS) program is funded with federal dollars and run by MDT. The primary objective of OJT/SS is to increase the overall effectiveness of MDT's OJT program in connection with Federal-aid highway construction projects, and to seek other ways to increase the training opportunities for women, minorities, and disadvantaged individuals.
This year MDT has partnered with Fort Peck Community College and Salish Kootenai College to increase training opportunities for women, minorities, and disadvantaged individuals in the highway construction industry.
To further increase training opportunities, MDT has partnered with Blackfeet Community College through the 2019 school year.
