ADOT launches a new AZ UTRACS Transportation Business Portal.
To make the AZ UTRACS Registration process easier and to provide a dual SBC Registration in one easy form, ADOT has introduced the new AZ UTRACS web portal.  This site is a one-stop portal to enable firms to complete an AZ UTRACS Registration, submit Bidders or Proposers Lists when bidding on projects, access the ADOT DBE System for Certification and Contract Payment Reporting, and offers a new and improved Firm (DBE) Search Directory.  

Registrations in the old AZ UTRACS System were automatically transferred and all DBEs were automatically AZ UTRACS registered.  Visit AZ UTRACS and contact [email protected] for more information.
