Minority and Woman-Owned Business Policy
Iona College recognizes the value of diversity in our community and is, therefore, committed to actively developing supplier diversity by supporting Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Women Business Enterprises. Iona College is committed to providing opportunities to certified Minority & Women-owned vendors for procurement of goods and services. A variety of approaches will be utilized to increase participation such as outreach, partnering with other educational institutions, and ability to participate in all bid and quote invitations. In all cases, however, College procurement decisions are made on the basis of both competitive prices and other essential considerations such as quality, suitability, delivery and service, all in accordance with College policy and state and federal regulatory requirements.
