The University is committed to expanding opportunities and spending with businesses certified by the State of Indiana. Procurement Services goals and practices encourage increased opportunities for certified minority-, women-, and veteran-owned (MWVBE) businesses.

The University recognizes the State of Indiana goal utilization percentages.

Purdue has established processes to ensure businesses of all demographics are given the opportunity to compete for University contracts.

  • MWVBE suppliers are included in solicitations over $1,000 for goods and services. 

  • Goals are included in formal solicitations, and respondents are encouraged to complete and return a signed document indicating their status as an business and their ability to subcontract with other MWVBE businesses.

  • Strategically sourced contracts include requirements for suppliers to provide their second tier spend with diverse suppliers monthly into Purdue’s Tier 2 reporting tool.

  • Participate and host orientation sessions for suppliers interested in doing business with the University
