Small, Women and Minority-Owned Businesses

The SWaM procurement initiative was established to enhance business opportunities for Small, Women and Minority-Owned Businesses (SWaM) and to ensure a level playing field for all SWaM businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia. A SWaM vendor is a business that has been certified by the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprise (DMBE) and is listed in the SWaM Vendor Directory. Radford University is commited to increasing supplier diversity in our vendor community.
