Affirmative Action Plans

The affirmative action plan is a formal, written, results-oriented document that outlines specific steps the contractor/consultant will take to remedy the present effects of past discrimination and insure the full utilization of minorities, women and other protected classes within the workforce.

Prime contractors/consultants must have an approved affirmative action plan prior to being awarded a contract and subcontractors/sub consultants must have a plan approved prior to starting work.

The Office of Contract Compliance is responsible for the review and approval of all contractor/consultant affirmative action plans for CTDOT administered projects and maintains a database of all firms with approved plans.
