Department of Management Services
The Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) is responsible for monitoring state agencies' compliance with statutory requirements relating to woman, minority and veteran business enterprises. For example, the OSD is responsible for reviewing and approving state agencies' minority business enterprise utilization plans required under sec.287.09451(6), Florida Statutes, and for ensuring state agencies' compliance with them.
Additionally, the OSD collects and posts state agencies' 90-day spending plans online as required by the Governor under executive order. The OSD records and measures the use of certified business enterprises in state contracting.
The State of Florida shows its commitment to a fair and equal opportunity to compete for state contracts. They continue to commit to embracing diversity so that vendors reflect the full diversity of the citizens they serve.
When woman-, minority- and veteran-owned businesses have fair opportunities to compete, all Floridians benefit. Expanding business spending power allows employment opportunities and an increase in economic growth and development within our communities. This expansion of economic opportunity reduces unemployment and the need for state-supported social welfare programs. At the same time, the expansion increases the state tax base and demand by woman, minority and veteran businesses from other businesses within their industry for raw materials and production support. Increased economic output and employment by woman, minority and veteran businesses have a positive rippling impact throughout the state.
