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:

As stated in the District "Vendor Guide":

"Supplier Diversity
The Seattle Community Colleges
strongly encourages the participation of
minority-, women- and veteran-owned
businesses; socially and economically
disadvantaged business enterprises;
small businesses; and local businesses
in its purchasing and contracting
activities. Participation may be through
direct contracting, sub-contracting
or a business partnership.

Washington State Office of Minority
and Women’s Business Enterprises
(OMWBE) certifies firms that are a
minority- or women-owned business.
Vendors are encouraged to contact
OMWBE at www.omwbe.wa.gov
directly for certification."

The District's specific plan for supplier diversity can be found at http://www.omwbe.wa.gov/supplierdiversity/documents/seattle%20cc%20spd.pdf
