The goal of the Office of Supplier Diversity is to increase the number of business enterprises in the State of Florida. Certification officers are responsible for identifying and certifying business enterprises by conducting thorough and effective eligibility reviews while ensuring that vendors receive prompt and responsive customer service. Eligibility criteria can be found in Chapter 287, Florida Statutes, Chapter 295.187, Florida Statues and Chapter 60A-9, Florida Administrative Code. The Office of Supplier Diversity maintains a directory of certified business enterprises online.
Certification officers are also available daily to answer questions and provide information and technical assistance to vendors, local governments and state agencies regarding the state's certification program. Vendors can learn more about the certification program by attending any of the seminars, workshops and/or trade shows hosted by the Office of Supplier Diversity.
