Supplier Diversity & Outreach Program (SDOP)
The SBBC’s Supplier Diversity Outreach Program is designed to help small, minority and women-owned businesses, to participate in District procurement and contract activities. The purpose of the program is to spur economic development and support small, and minority and women-owned businesses to successfully expand in the marketplace.
The Supplier Diversity Outreach Program (SDOP) policy includes narrowly-tailored Affirmative Procurement Initiatives designed to increase availability, capacity, and contract participation by Small/Minority/Women Business Enterprises (S/M/WBEs). We promote the involvement and economic growth of S/M/WBEs through certification, community outreach, goal setting, bid evaluation, contract compliance, and other program areas.
The School Board of Broward County, Florida (SBBC) adopted Supplier Diversity Outreach Program (SDOP) Policy 3330 on January 18, 2017. The policy became effective on July 1, 2017. The new program includes Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Certification and Minority/Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Certification. This program provides certification to eligible businesses in the tri-county market including Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County.
Broward County Public Schools and the new Supplier Diversity Outreach Program is open for business. Get certified to increase your access to procurement opportunities in construction, professional services, other contractual services, and commodities.
