Supplier Diversity Fair Registration

About The KCTCS
Supplier Diversity Initiative:
The overall objective of the Supplier Diversity Initiative is to ensure KCTCS meets the 2010-2016 Strategic Plan goals to "reflect the diversity of the students and employees of our 16 colleges and the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”
KCTCS, through our relationship with National Diversity Solutions (NDS), utilizes our Diverse Supplier Collaboration 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 KCTCS, suppliers must provide impeccable quality and deliver as promised at competitive costs.
