The University is committed to vendor diversification by ensuring that small and diverse businesses (see definition) are included in the University procurement process. We promote access to procurement opportunities by creating an equitable and competitive business environment through encouraging campus departments to proactively consider qualified certified businesses owned by minorities, females, persons with disabilities, veterans, and small businesses for their contracting needs.
The State of Illinois agencies and universities have a searchable database to locate certified diverse firms to participate on University of Illinois contracts. Certified diverse firms are included in a searchable database maintained by the State's Business Enterprise Program (BEP), which can be found at the following CMS website. Additionally, the Office of Procurement, Disbursements and Contract Services can assist with searches.
