Welcome to the University of Kentucky Facilities Management
Supplier Diversity Portal
The mission of the Purchasing Division (including Central Purchasing, Hospital Purchasing, and Capital Construction Procurement) is to provide service and support, in a legal and professional manner, to purchase quality goods and services at the best value to the University Community while pursuing the goal of becoming one of the nation's top twenty public research universities. The University of Kentucky is also committed to serve as an advocate for minority, women and disabled-owned businesses in their efforts to conduct business.
University of Kentucky Facilities Management (UKFM), through our relationship with National Diversity Solutions (NDS), utilizes our Supplier Diversity Portal to register, qualify and communicate with current and potential diverse suppliers of certain goods and services. Once approved, suppliers are eligible to receive invitations to participate in opportunities to provide goods/ services through a competitive RFP/RFQ process. There is no cost associated for suppliers to register or participate in identified opportunities. To be successful with UKFM, suppliers must provide impeccable quality and deliver as promised at competitive costs.
