What’s easier than parallel parking, remembering a password, or filing your taxes? Finding out if your business qualifies for a Supplier Diversity Office (SDO) certification! Gone are the days of wondering how to start the process of becoming a certified diverse business. With the introduction of a new web-based self-assessment tool, the SDO now offers the right certification information to the right user in five or fewer questions anytime, anywhere.

Rather than wading through the various program descriptions and trying to figure out what fits their businesses, interested users are able to complete a short questionnaire that will direct them to the exact forms and documentation required for the matching diverse business certifications. Users may find out in just a few minutes if they are eligible to be certified as a Minority-, Women-, Veteran-, Service-Disabled Veteran-, Disabled-, or LGBT-owned business, or qualify for the Small Business Purchasing Program.

“This tool allows the SDO team to scale our outreach to businesses. Having this information available 24/7 and tailored specifically to the user taking the assessment streamlines the application process for the business, and frees up time for our team to focus more on delivering great programs,” says Dmitriy Nikolayev, SDO Director of Policy and Programs.

To access the tool, go to mass.gov/sdo and click on the slide image.
