BDAG provides valuable input and recommendations that help us make solicitations more equitable. Their recommendations have led to changes in our solicitation processes that remove barriers for small, diverse, and veteran-owned businesses to win state contracts Additionally, BDAG’s recommendations helped us create the enterprise Supplier Diversity Policy.
We meet the third Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. - Noon.
Meetings are open to all small, minority-, veteran- and/or woman-owned businesses.
