Supplier Diversity Procurement Program
The University of Kentucky is committed to the goal of nondiscrimination and to giving fair consideration to all suppliers in its procurement programs. UK's "Supplier Diversity Procurement Program" was established to ensure small, women-owned and minority-owned businesses have full opportunity to compete for the university's business. The program serves as liaison between the diverse supplier community and all UK employees with procurement authority.
