Supplier Inclusion Program Policy & Objectives
The Nevada System of Higher Education and the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) recognize that an open, competitive atmosphere is beneficial to both buyer and seller, and it is our policy to foster this environment. CSN does not discriminate on any basis. Accordingly, CSN will make good-faith efforts to utilize minority-owned, women-owned, physically-challenged and veteran/service-disabled veterans throughout the procurement process.
This effort does not equate to a quota or set percentage. All efforts to contact and engage minority-owned, women-owned, physically-challenged and veteran/service-disabled veteran suppliers will be fair and impartial. In accordance with Nevada law, no preference will be given to any business group or classification. The Supplier Inclusion Program has been created to ensure that minority-owned, women-owned, physically-challenged and veteran/service-disabled veterans have the unimpeded ability to compete in the procurement process and to do business with CSN.
