Supplier Diversity Program
The District’s objective and responsibility is to ensure that Minority (MBE), Women (WBE), Veteran (VBE), Disabled (DBE), Disabled-Veteran (DVBE), Hub Zone, and Small (8(a)) Business Enterprise firms have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate and compete for KCPS purchases and contracts.  We influence the depth and diversity of the vendor pool by promoting fair and open access for District business opportunities. Such efforts strengthen the District’s economic vitality and assist in getting the best price and value for the District.
