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 University of Richmond adopted its women- and minority-owned enterprises (WMBE) policy in December 2011 to reflect its growing commitment to a diverse and inclusive community. The University of Richmond is committed to the creation and development of relationships with women- and minority-owned enterprises. The University will engage and encourage WMBE’s participation in the procurement process. In addition, the University will expect its contractors to adopt similar strategies of inclusion. All individuals of the University staff who are involved with procurement decisions are required to diversify their sources of business to include WMBE’s. However, the University will not favor any WMBE supplier solely on the basis of their status. All suppliers will be assessed using the same criteria and are subject to the same conditions as all University suppliers.
