2023 We the People Convening: RFP Process for Small, Minority, Women, and Veteran-Owned Business Inclusion

On October 25th, Drew Zavatsky & Elena McGrew from the Dept. of Enterprise Services put on a workshop for an online group of state agency employees. 

Strategies for success: The purpose of the supplier diversity policy is to ensure that all procurement professionals and those with acquisition responsibilities use approved, legally compliant strategies to encourage and facilitate the purchase of goods and services from small, diverse, and veteran-owned businesses to the maximum extent possible. Agencies must take action to create equitable access to state goods and services procurements for small and veteran-owned businesses. In this session, you will learn the ten strategies for increasing this access.
