benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination in Caltrans programs, policies,
procedures, activities, and services on the grounds of race, color, national origin, sex,

We Want To Hear From You!

We want to hear about your experiences or interest in contract work with the California Department of Transportation.

Your insights will help Caltrans improve its efforts to contract with small businesses and minority and woman owned businesses.

What is a Disparity Study?

A disparity study is used to assess whether any barriers exist for minority and woman owned businesses that make it more difficult for them to compete for Caltrans contracts.
