NDOT sponsors litter-removal programs such as Adopt-A-Highway, which was designed to save taxpayer funds that would be used for highway clean-up.
NDOT also runs the Pioneer Program, which is intended to implement public-private partnerships that allow the state to "leverage limited public funds" in order to undertake needed transportation improvements that could not be funded otherwise.
Status reports for major projects as well as project studies are available on the NDOT website. Although project studies, estimated costs, project team contact information, and updates are available for most projects, contracts do not seem to be posted.
NDOT is governed by a Board of Directors, including the governor of Nevada. NDOT has an operating budget of approximately $800 million and over 1,750 employees.
Public records request information is provided.
Executive staff phone numbers but not email addresses are provided. Phone numbers and emails are provided for different divisions and administrators within NDOT. Contact information for Senior Staff, including the Director, does not appear to be available and salary information is not disclosed.
