Our goal is to make purchasing from diverse businesses just as quick, easy, and effective as buying from any other vendor. We are in the process of designing and building tools and resources to support campus purchasers - we welcome any requests, suggestions, and input from our campus community!
As of October 1, 2022, Seattle University has adopted a new Policy on Supplier Diversity. Additionally, the Procurement Policy Statement was updated to include requirements for including diverse vendors in competitive bids.
Help us make sure we have correct vendor information, including their diversity status. If you notice a vendor may not be correctly flagged in ProcureSU, let us know.
