The Minority Information provides guidance not only to vendors, but to purchasing officials as well. Within this link of Diversity in Contracting, you will be able to dive into an overview in conducting business and navigating for minority vendors who are registered with the State of Mississippi, procurement professionals toolkit, and frequently asked questions, along with guidance from the Mississippi Procurement Technical Assistance Program (MPTAP). In the link for Vendor Information, you can register with Office of Purchasing, Travel and Fleet Management's E-procurment System for other opportunities with the State. Other links to consider are Contracts that are set up for state agencies and governing authorities usage, Bidding Opportunities for vendors, Proposal Formats and Guidelines, Approval Formats, and links to State Agencies and Local Governments addresses. Within these contracts, you will find that minority vendors are referenced with an M or MV beside the dealer name.
