Small Businesses (SBs) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) are being sought to work on nationwide Amtrak projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Amtrak has set an ARRA goal of prime or subcontracting 25 percent of the work with SBs and 10 percent with DBEs.
Projects include construction, renovation, repair and / or upgrade of properties for Amtrak and other railroad owners throughout the US. SBs and DBEs with core competency and relevant design / build experience are invited to apply for prime or subcontractor opportunities by following these directions.
More information on specific project details can be found on Amtrak’s Web site.
