Providing Information, Resources, and Opportunity

The Office of Procurement Services provides outreach to small or diverse businesses through its Diversity Business Enterprise program.  We seek to provide relevant information and resources to assist diverse suppliers in their pursuit of business opportunities with the university.

State of Tennessee Diversity Certification 

We encourage eligible suppliers to certify as a diversity business with the State of Tennessee Governor’s Office of Diversity Business Enterprise (GoDBE).

The state lists certified vendors in its diversity business directory, allowing the university and other government agencies to identify diverse suppliers easily.
