Supplier Diversity

Minnesota State is committed to taking affirmative action to enhance and optimize business and contracting opportunities that promote economic growth and prosperity of the diverse student bodies and communities we serve. Minnesota State created the Supplier Diversity program to foster partnerships with historically under-utilized businesses and ensure that diverse suppliers are given equal opportunities to provide goods and services system-wide. 

Pursuant to Minnesota State policy 5.14 and Minn. Stat. 16C.16, diverse suppliers, partners, or subcontractors could receive up to 15 percent in the evaluation of bid opportunities.
