Diversity in Contracts

Liaison

Diversity Liaisons serve as champions within their departments and encourage fellow staff members to include diverse businesses when planning acquisitions. The role of a Liaison between Purchasing and a UCF department is a critical component to making our supplier diversity program continue to grow.

To immediately make a difference, liaisons are encouraged to:

  1. Tell everyone in their department or area about the Diversity in Contracts program or request a presentation at their next staff meeting.
  2. Ask us for a list of businesses that are small, minority or woman owned business enterprises (S/MWBE’s) when there is a purchasing opportunity.
  3. Send us a forecast of major purchase opportunities.
  4. Volunteer to attend a supplier diversity outreach event along with Purchasing.
