Prequalification Nondiscrimination Self-Certification

INDOT is required to ensure contractors and consultants who receive federal funds are in compliance with Title VI requirements. Compliance with Title VI is a requirement for prequalification. See ITAP Statement of Compliance with Nondiscrimination Requirements. Self-Certification is an affirmation by the company that it operates and meets all Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related laws, executive orders, rules and regulations. Only Self-Certify if the above requirements are being met. Please refer all questions to accessforall@indot.in.gov.

Online Training

INDOT requires Title VI Coordinators to receive regular Title VI training at a minimum of every two years. As requirements change, it is the company’s responsibility to ensure it stays current and up to date with Tile VI requirements. INDOT provides online training to consultant contractor Title VI Coordinators pursuant to 23 CFR 200.9(b)(9). INDOT offers an online training option as a timelier and expedient way for the Title VI requirements to be met. The online training is composed of two parts, a PowerPoint tutorial, and a pass/fail test. The Title VI Coordinator must score in the 90th percentile to pass the test and receive a notice of completion from INDOT. Title VI Coordinators must send their completed test to AccessForAll@indot.in.gov for pass/fail determination and receive a certification of completion.
