Does the institution seek to support historically underutilized businesses, minority-owned businesses, and women owned-businesses?:

A brief description of how the institution meets the criteria:

The college follows Washington State regulations. Here's an example of language used in RFP and RFQs: 2.7 Minority and Women-Owned Business Participation. In accordance with the legislative findings and policies set forth in chapter 39.19 RCW, the state of Washington encourages participation in all of its contracts by firms certified by the Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises (OMWBE). Participation may be either on a direct basis in response to this solicitation or on a subcontractor basis. However, no preference will be included in the evaluation of quotes, no minimum level of MWBE participation shall be required as a condition for receiving an award, and quotes will not be rejected or considered non-responsive on that basis. Any affirmative action requirements set forth in federal regulations or statutes included or referenced in the contract documents will apply. The established annual procurement participation goals for MBE is 10% and for WBE, 4%, for this type of project. These goals are voluntary. Bidders may contact OMWBE at 360/753-9693 to obtain information on certified firms. (The goals listed above are determined on an individual basis.)
