MA Supplier Diversity Office
     
DATE:   01/20/2011
     
DESCRIPTION:   On the second half of the show, host Steve Tompkins talks with MA Supplier Diversity Office executive director Reggie Nunnally about the Massachusetts Supplier Diversity Office. The SDO came about through a consolidation of the Office of Minority and Women Owned Business Assistance and the Affirmative Market Program. Reggie talks about the certification process and that even though certified; there is no guarantee to obtain contracts through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The SDO offers intensive pre-certification workshops every month for potential businesses owners to see if they are eligible to become certified. Once certified, there are six different programs from where a minority or woman owned business can apply for obtaining contracts.
