The Nevada System of Higher Education and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, recognize the benefit of creating an equal opportunity for all vendors to participate in the university’s procurement process, and the university is committed to diversity and nondiscrimination in its business operations. Accordingly, UNLV will make a good-faith effort to utilize minority business enterprises, women business enterprises, disabled business enterprises, veteran/disabled veteran business enterprises, and small business enterprises throughout the procurement process. This effort does not equate to a quota or set percentage. All efforts to contact and engage small, minority, disabled, veteran, and women vendors will be fair and impartial.
In accordance with Nevada law, no preference will be given to any business group or classification. The Supplier Inclusion Program has been created, however, to ensure that small and minority-, veteran-, disabled-, and woman-owned businesses have the unimpeded ability to compete in the bidding process and to do business with UNLV.
