NCDOT Compliance Audit Tool (CAT)
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has developed a web-based audit application to conduct Title VI compliance reviews of internal program areas and its sub-recipients. The Compliance Audit Tool (CAT) has several distinct features:
Acts as a repository to store audit review details and data for future use
Includes an approval process for managers
Can enter, track, and report Title VI audits
Generates letters of findings, summary of findings, and corrective actions reports
The development of the CAT has significantly reduced the processing time for conducting audit reviews within the NCDOT.

IA DOT OJT Goal Setting
OJT Goal Setting – The Iowa DOT has achieved success in their OJT Program by establishing annual OJT goals for contractors based on the amount of work the contractor has been awarded in the previous 3 years. This process allows contractors to place OJT trainees where their classifications are most needed.
