Small Business Requirements

Mission Statement

The mission of the Small Business Program is to assist and encourage the campus in their efforts to include small,  disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, service disabled veteran-owned and HubZONE businesses in their procurement activities.

Small Business Program:

The Small Business Program is coordinated for the university by the Small Business Liaison. This person is responsible for planning, keeping records, doing outreach on the campus and into the community in order to identify and encourage utilization of small businesses, especially those owned and operated by women and minority persons, veteran and service disabled-veterans and/or in HubZONES.

Sub-Contracting Plans:

A sub-contracting plan is a written promise from the university to the agency/company/foundation, etc. who is funding the project/research that we will try to utilize these varied small firms in our purchasing activities. These plans are written by the Small Business Liaison Officer (SBL) in the Purchasing Department. If or when you have need of a plan, contact the SBL as soon as the budget for the project is complete. The plan is built around your budget. We look at everything you are going to buy and set the goals for Small, MBE/WBEs, Veteran, Service Disabled-Veteran and HubZONE as appropriate. We produce the plan, forward it to the agency and subsequently do the reporting on the plan for you. These are usually filed on federal reports, ISR and SSR. The ISR is due every six months, in April and October. The SSR is usually due once a year in October. The plan includes a list of the minimum efforts the university will make. These requirements are met by carrying out the Small Business Program as outlined above. This is done by the Small Business Liaison in the Purchasing Department; however, it cannot succeed without your cooperation.
