Supplier Diversity

The department’s Supplier Diversity initiative strives to ensure the promise of Florida's future is shared by all of its residents, regardless of their race, ethnicity, neighborhood or background. Its mission is to unite Floridians behind a shared vision of opportunity and diversity. The goal was and continues to be to increase opportunity and diversity in the state's contracting without using policies that discriminate or that pit one racial group against another.

The Department of Management Services, Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) works to reflect the state's commitment to fair and equal opportunity for all to compete for state contracts, while enthusiastically embracing diversity so that vendors reflect the full diversity of the citizens of Florida. The OSD is responsible for measuring the state's success as it relates to minority spending, matchmaking viable-growth-oriented minority businesses with purchasing/contract opportunities, investigating complaints of discrimination and enhancing minority business development.
