Diversity in Contracts

SMWVBE (Small, Minority, Woman, Veteran Business Enterprises)


COVID-19 Updates: 

All suppliers must comply with UCF’s Emergency COVID-19 Return Policy, which requires all vendors, contractors, and employees to wear a mask or facial covering when indoors and outdoors and to maintain physical distancing of six feet where possible. Suppliers must also complete the COVID-19 self-checker each day before coming to campus. Review the Resources for Vendors, Visitors and Contractors for more information.

The State of Florida Office of Supplier Diversity has developed a COVID-19 Small Business Resources webpage with information to assist small businesses during this time. Please contact the organization managing each resource for specific details. Below are some additional resources for small businesses needing assistance due to COVID-19.

Please review the OCPS May Bid Listing from our partner agency Orange County Public Schools. Visit the OCPS Vendor Registration site for more information.


Use the featured directories to search for a listing of SMWVBEs or contact the Diversity in Contracts program for help in identifying suppliers for inclusion.

Feel free to contact Diversity in Contracts at any time to obtain a list of potential businesses. Allow 2-3 days for response and include your supplier criteria, scope of work, and deadline with your request.

Disclaimer: Procurement Services does not maintain a list of “approved suppliers.” Each department is encouraged to evaluate each supplier according to its own satisfaction. Review suppliers’ past work, references, and pricing prior to selection. Procurement buyers can assist as far as searching cooperative contracts and existing annual contracts for use with particular purchases.
