NCDOT is looking for technical expertise in environmental mapping and modeling with experience in the Project Development Process to assist with the GIS based Regional Environmental Modeling. This will be a statewide effort focusing on 8 regions. NCDOT staff from the Environmental Analysis Unit, the GIS Unit, Technical Services, and other Units will be in attendance to discuss their effort to streamline project delivery through increased use of GIS-based data layers and analysis. This is your opportunity to introduce us to your staff and highlight what individuals from your firm can contribute to this effort. Please bring a one page biography for each staff member summarizing the relevant skill set. The Department’s presentation will be followed by a general Question and Answer Session as well as individual discussions with potential candidates to be considered for this work.
