This report highlights the program's accomplishments in promoting the advancement of Minority and Women Business Enterprises (M/WBE’s) in public contracting.  Access and opportunity in state procurement is one of the prime objectives of Governor Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Murray’s Administration that is changing how government does business with Minority and Women owned companies.  $905,088,110 in total combined spending was accomplished through the Supplier Diversity Office in FY2012, with MBEs, WBEs, and SBPP participants.  It is good business to diversify who the Commonwealth does business with and it is important that as many businesses as possible in Massachusetts have an equal opportunity to contract with state government.
