The College makes every effort to diversify our procurement activities to include MWBE (Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise), VBE (Veteran Owned Small Business Enterprise), and SB (Small Business) vendors where applicable and appropriate. These vendors will be given the opportunity to bid on projects and be included on vendor listings, regardless of funding source. These vendors will be evaluated and selected using the same criteria as all other vendors and will not be favored solely on their status. Vendor awards will always be made based upon best value; however, if all parameters are favorable, the College prefers to support diversity vendors where possible. A link to the New York State certified MWBE vendor directory can be found here.
