About the Supplier Diversity Office
SDO certifies companies for the State (MBE, WBE, PBE and VBE) certification program. Diverse businesses provide ever increasing value to the Massachusetts economy. By facilitating a streamlined approach to certification and access to the various phases of state purchasing and contracting, the Supplier Diversity Office provides valuable services to many of these businesses which make up the state’s fastest growing business sector in the Commonwealth.
These companies recognize that a diverse supply base offers a competitive advantage in today’s multicultural business economy. When your company becomes a Certified MBE, it also gets listed in the national minority supplier database. This placement allows corporations across the country to find your MBE and reach out to you with contract opportunities and other business ventures. Minority owned business certification attempts to bridge this gap in access to capital, while also positioning minority business owners to be considered for government and corporate contracts earmarked for minority-owned businesses.
