Diversity Business Enterprises Program

Providing Information, Resources, and Opportunity

The Office of Procurement Services provides outreach to small or diverse businesses through its Diversity Business Enterprise program. We seek to provide relevant information and resources to assist diverse suppliers in their pursuit of business opportunities with the university.

University Information and Resources

State of Tennessee Diversity Certification

We encourage eligible suppliers to certify as a diversity business with the State of Tennessee Governor’s Office of Diversity Business Enterprise (GoDBE).

The state lists certified vendors in its diversity business directory, allowing the university and other government agencies to identify diverse suppliers easily. 

For more information, visit The State of Tennessee Diversity Business Enterprise Program.

Vendors and Suppliers

Thank you for your interest in doing business with The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC)! We consider the vendors providing goods and services to the University as vital partners in helping us accomplish our missions in education, research, and public service.

The University strives to do business in a fair, ethical, and competitive manner. Any questions or concerns about the procurement process should be directed to the purchasing agent handling the purchase or to the Assistant Director of Purchasing at 901.448.7271.
