Department of Management Services

Agency Resources

The Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) is a specialized team within the Florida Department of Management Services responsible for helping woman-, veteran-, and minority-owned businesses get involved in the state purchasing process. One of our primary roles is to align our efforts with state agencies along with the small business community to expand economic opportunities. When woman-, veteran- and minority-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. 

The OSD works closely with state agencies to strengthen the awareness of Certified Business Enterprise vendors. Agency procurement teams provide OSD 90-day spending plans and annual Business Participation Plans.

If you are a purchasing decision maker for your state or local government entity, municipality, state university or other eligible representative, and would like to find out more about the services and events OSD offers, please contact the Office of Supplier Diversity at 850-487-0915. We look forward to working with you.
