In addition to UB, this includes supplier opportunities with all SUNY campuses, including Buffalo State, ECC and NCCC in Western New York, as well as New York State departments.
Become a Certified Minority or Woman-Owned Business
The University at Buffalo is one of a growing number of state institutions recognizing a need for increased diversity among its suppliers of goods and services. The university is encouraging minority- and women- owned business enterprises to apply for state certification, becoming eligible for opportunities at UB and across the state. UB’s Office of Supplier Diversity offers guidelines, workshops and vendor fairs in an effort to match certified suppliers with university needs.
