>DoT is clearly the Department of Transportation

Here in the UK we call them the Department for Transport.

Transportation is the deprecated process of sending criminals to 

Trade (and commerce) was dealt with by the Department of Trade and 
Industry, now renamed Department for Business, Innovation and Skills; 
unless it's anything to do with the Internet when it's the Department 
for Media, Culture and Sport (on account of the interweb being a bit 
like a TV channel, I suppose).
