Native American Hiring Provision

The Native American Hiring Provision supports the government-to-government relationship between the state and the tribes, and enhances Native American labor employment opportunities on state and federal transportation projects that are located on, or partially on, tribal or reservation lands.

This WisDOT contract provision was developed in consultation with tribal leaders and labor contacts and adopted by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation in 2014. It requires direct engagement between primes, including subcontractors and tribal labor offices when projects are carried out on or partially on tribal or reservation lands.
