Oregon Certification Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity

The University of Oregon promotes inclusive excellence.  We encourage our departments to celebrate the strengths of a multicultural community.   In addition to our work on campus, the Purchasing and Contracting Services encourages our buyers to continously reach out to new and diverse business providers.  For the state of Oregon, the COBID office maintains certification information for women owned, minority owned, emerging businesses and veteran owned businesses.  We also ask that formal and informal procurements always invite certified businesses to bid.
