Senior Director, Chief Procurement Officer
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:
UC San Diego has a small business coordinator and others that reach out to historically underutilized businesses, minority-owned businesses and women-owned businesses. Past activities have included speaking to groups, staffing tables at outreach events, and hosting “How to Do Business with UC San Diego” seminars. It is necessary for the university to continue outreach efforts and training to these types of businesses in support of research programs and to meet the complexity and variety of campus needs. Additionally, it is necessary for equal opportunity and access in business contracting and in accordance with university policy. The university does seek to support these types of diverse small businesses in support of Federal, State and local contracting compliance and opportunities. This helps us to ensure the success and sustainability of our programs.
