Certified New York State Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE)
Purchasing Department Policy No. 302
ORIGINAL: January 2003 LAST REVISED: August 2011 REVISION DATE: January 2016
The purpose of this policy is to define a procedure for the use of Certified New York State Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprise.
It is the policy of Fredonia to take affirmative action to ensure that Minority and Women-Owned Businesses (M/WBE) that are certified by New York State are given the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to provide the University with goods and services at competitive prices. When a department utilizes a New York State certified vendor, their account will be credited 10% of the total amount by the University. Departments need to note that the vendor is an M/WBE to insure that they receive that credit.
Please contact the Purchasing Department at extension 3438 if you have any questions regarding M/WBE vendors. A complete listing of M/WBE vendors is available by visiting the following website: http://www.nylovesmwbe.ny.gov/ .
