The New York State (NYS) Division of Minority and Women's Business Development promotes economic opportunities for minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs), works to eliminate barriers to participation in state contracts, and oversees the state's certification process.
As a recipient of federal and state grants, Cornell seeks to do business with NYS-certified MWBEs. We encourage you to review the qualification requirements and to apply for state certification.
On June 27, 2014, Cornell Procurement Services hosted a New York State Vendor Certification workshop. Below are the materials from that workshop.
