WI 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 selected population.​ WI certified MBE and DVB businesses may receive a 5% bid preference when they bid on state contracts.​

DIRECTIONS ~ Wisconsin Supplier Diversity Program Updates by Director Tondra Davis

We are excited and optimistic about what 2021 holds for the Wisconsin Supplier Diversity Program and our MBE, WBE and DVBs. Like many of you, Supplier Diversity became all too familiar with the term “pivot" in 2020. Thankfully, with commitment to the cause, perseverance and hard work we achieved many successes in 2020.

Perhaps our most notable 2020 success is for the 5th time in the history of the program, we achieved the 5% Diverse State Spending Goal with a 5.40% Diverse Spend. This goal hadn't been met since 2014. Our success is your success. Thank you for competitively Bidding on State Contracts and successfully executing each of the awarded projects.

In 2021 we vow to continue working on the directives of Governor Tony Evers' Executive Order #59:

1) Assessing and improving current procurement and contract processes; and
2) Developing new relationships and strategies to create and foster opportunities for our diverse suppliers.

Let us know how we can be of assistance. It would be our pleasure to serve you!​

​All the best,

~Tondra
