Vendor Outreach Symposiums

To increase its outreach efforts and to market contracting opportunities to the public, the NTTA hosts Vendor Outreach Symposiums to provide information about upcoming projects.
The symposiums are traveling road shows that offer one-stop outreach for prospective vendors and
provide information about contract opportunities for future NTTA projects and procurements. Participants have the opportunity to meet staff from various NTTA departments, including the Business Diversity Department. Representatives from the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency also provide information about how to become DBE- or M/WBE-certified.

These events are designed to engage diverse contractors in the process of doing business with the NTTA. Attendees receive assistance from procurement specialists on finding available opportunities online. Vendors also can complete vendor registrations on site, and question-and-answer sessions are held to address any procurement concerns. The sessions also include time for networking with other participants.
