Incentives

All incentives are subject to funding and feasibility. CDOT will review the incentives applied to your Mentor-Protégé relationship with you at the beginning of the program year. 

  • Mentors may receive financial or tailored ESB participation incentives on future projects for subcontracting to their Protégé. If available, teams are eligible for these incentives during their initial year in the program and for one year thereafter.
  • Mentor-protégé teams will be eligible for a bonus as part of the financial incentive for CDOT construction and professional services contracts. Mentors may receive $2,000 for at least $20,000 of participation by a protégé that participated in the CDOT Mentor-Protégé Program with the mentor during the team’s initial year in the program and for one year thereafter. Mentors may receive $5,000 for at least $50,000 of participation by a protégé that participated in the CDOT Mentor-Protégé Program with the mentor during the team’s initial year in the program and for one year thereafter. This can be used for two awarded contracts.
  • Mentors may receive a financial stipend for time spent with the protégé. To receive the financial stipend, firms must submit an invoice at the completion of a milestone identified in the team’s Mentor-Protégé Program Plan.
  • Special Recognition (to internal and external stakeholders, including newsletter announcement, internal CDOT communication, recognition before the Transportation Commission).
