Supplier Diversity Program

We established our Supplier Diversity Program in 1983, consistent with our mission to promote economic development throughout New York State and our commitment to expand the participation of Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) in our contracting and competitive-bidding processes, both for direct procurement of goods and services and through subcontracting opportunities.

Since establishing this program, NYPA has awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts to qualified M/WBEs (en Español) for various products and services. To be eligible for consideration, firms must meet criteria set by the Empire State Development Corporation's Division of Minority- and Women-Owned Business Development.

We encourage M/WBE firms seeking procurement opportunities to submit a vendor profile to our Procurement Division. For more information, please contact Debra White, Director, Supplier Diversity, at debra.white@nypa.gov, or at:
