Supplier Diversity Program

The Wisconsin Supplier Diversity Program (SDP) certifies Minority-Owned (MBE), Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned (DVB) and Woman-Owned (WBE) businesses to provide better opportunity for them to do business with the State of Wisconsin and to​ assist the State of Wisconsin in achieving its goal of purchasing 5% with MBEs and 1% with DVBs.​ The SDP verifies ​that businesses are at least 51% owned, managed, and controlled by a member or members of the ​selected population.​ WI certified MBE and DVB businesses may receive a 5% permissive bid preference when they bid on state contracts.​
