Emerging Small Business Program

The Emerging Small Business (ESB) Program is a CDOT program that aims to help small businesses acquire the knowledge, experience, and resources needed to participate on CDOT construction, professional service, and research contracts. The ESB Program is a CDOT-specific, race and gender-neutral small business program that was adopted by the Transportation Commission.

Becoming Certified as an ESB

    ESB Annual Renewal

    Certified ESB firms must submit documentation annually on the anniversary of their certification to verify continued eligibility.

    Utilizing ESB Firms on CDOT Projects

    CDOT seeks to create opportunities for ESBs on construction and design projects. Certification is not an endorsement by CDOT of a firm's products, services, or overall quality.
