Commitment

UMMS is committed to maintaining an equitable and competitive business environment. As part of this commitment, we adhere to a comprehensive nondiscrimination policy and work to develop procedures and initiatives that will help ensure that all suppliers in our procurement programs receive fair consideration.

The Supplier Diversity Program was established to ensure that small and minority-owned businesses have full opportunity to compete for the University‚Äôs business. The supplier diversity manager acts as a liaison between diverse suppliers and all University staff who have procurement responsibilities, continually reaffirming our commitment to diversity while developing procurement programs that are beneficial for everyone involved.
