The State of New York believes that increasing the utilization of Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE'S) is an important element of the States' and SUNYs' contribution to growth of our economy and community.

Executive Law, Article 15-A establishes State-wide Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise utilization goals and imposes sanctions on agencies that substantially fail to meet their goals.  SUNY also includes MWBE utilization as a component of campus presidential evaluations.

It is the policy of Buffalo State College to take affirmative action to ensure that Minority and Women Owned Businesses, certified by New York State, are given the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to provide the college with goods and services at competitive prices.
