Sustainability Education and Outreach Specialist
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:
Purchasing and the Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Office help ensure that HUB businesses are given equal access to participate fully in all aspects of the University's construction and procurement opportunities. The program goals are to:
* Inform the HUB Community of the bidding process, procurement, and contracting opportunities at UNCG.
* Strive to exceed the State's goal of 10% by establishing a UNCG goal of 15% HUB participation.
* Encourage the participation of the HUB designers and contractors in all aspects of the UNCG construction process.
* Partner with surrounding Universities and State agencies, community, and trade organizations in outreach initiatives directed at increasing the participation and success rate of the HUB designers, contractors, and
HUB vendor candidates are actively identified and recorded for use in all appropriate purchases. The Purchasing Department participates in vendor fairs and minority programs to identify potential new HUB sources of supplies
Solicitations issued by the Purchasing Department consider the use of these vendors. As well, all requests for pricing accomplished by departments consider the use of HUB vendors.
Announcements and correspondence are made to emphasize the significance of the HUB program, where and when appropriate.
