A brief description of the program:
The College prioritizes using local businesses when viable. Due to NYS legislation restrictions, the College has to consider non-local sources in some situations. State preferred sources, Minority and Woman Owned Businesses and state contract companies are given a high priority when it comes to purchasing. The College supports numerous local businesses such as printing, trades and construction supply businesses.
