The Illinois Tollway Technical Assistance Program is designed to prepare established firms including disadvantaged, minority- and women-owned business enterprise firms, veteran-owned small businesses as well as small businesses to participate as prime contractors on highway and vertical construction contracts.
Participants will receive comprehensive, customized business development assistance to build financial understanding and business plan development for increased business stability and growth in the transportation-related construction industry. Services are customized to the assessed strengths, challenges and needs of participating firms. This includes education, guidance and feedback on general business and construction-specific operations, including strategic planning and assistance with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) pre-qualification application.
