The Connecticut Department of Administrative Services's Supplier Diversity Program aims to help small business enterprises (SBEs) and minority business enterprises (MBEs) identify business opportunities for improved economic growth. Through the program, eligible companies can become certified as SBE/MBEs to take advantage of the state's various programs and be listed in Connecticut's certified SBE/MBE vendor directory.

Does this certification expire? Yes. A given certification is valid for a period not to exceed two years. Renewal notices will be mailed 90, 60, and 30 days before the expiration of certification. Renewal is done online through the certification portal maintained by the Department of Administrative Services, through which initial application for certification is made.

Does this program require bidders attempt to make a good-faith effort to meet participation goals? All executive branch State agencies (as distinct from bidders with those agencies) with a budget of more than $10,000 are required to make a good faith effort to set aside 25% of their purchases for certified small or minority business enterprises.
