Supplier Diversity Program

Supplier Diversity Program


The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Supplier Diversity Program promotes business relationships and contract opportunities with small, diverse and disadvantaged businesses wishing to provide goods and services to the University community. Visit these pages to learn about the Supplier Diversity Program and how diverse businesses are supported at the University.

The Supplier Diversity Program Manager:

  • Educates suppliers on how to be prepared to provide goods and services to departments on the UCSF campus
  • Provides diverse business resources to departments and works with them to consider and purchase from diverse and disadvantaged businesses to support their departments’ operational and research needs.
  • Assists campus project teams, submitting proposals or engaged in federally funded research contracts or subcontracts. The manager helps them to develop Small Business Subcontracting Plans in which they commit to achieving specific small business utilization goals as directed under the Federal Acquisition Regulations – FAR Part 19 and Part 52.219-9
  • Advises project teams which have been awarded Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cooperative agreements. As stated in 40 CFR, these agreements require progress toward fair share goals. In October of each year, the manager files a report with EPA, stating the annual progress toward minority business enterprise (MBE) and women business enterprise spend (WBE) goals.
  • Collaborates with other UC campuses to promote relationships with diverse suppliers at UC Berkeley, UCSF and throughout the UC system.
