N.J. construction projects exist for small and disadvantaged businesses

N.J. construction projects exist for small and disadvantaged businesses

Transportation commissioner urges more to apply.

Small business operators currently hold 19.5 percent, or $58.4 million, of the construction and professional service contracts issued by the state government and the state transportation commissioner wants to see the figure rise to 25 percent.

At a conference in Atlantic City to promote opportunities for small businesses in the aviation industry, Transportation Commissioner James Simpson told small business operators that transportation is a key sector of the New Jersey economy and business opportunities of all sizes can be found there.

Simpson encouraged small business owners, for example, to network with large aviation contractors because federally funded projects generally require prime contractors to divert a portion of the contract value to disadvantaged businesses. He said that while set-asides present important opportunities for small businesses, old-fashioned salesmanship and direct contact with those who purchase goods and services are also keys to successfully generating sales revenue.
