SWaM Roundtable Event

On Wednesday, May 11, UMW hosted a Regional Connect Event for vendors, sponsored by the Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity. The event featured buyers from various state agencies along with vendors. This allows buyers to share their expertise in procurement contracts and Micro and SWaM certifications, while giving small businesses the opportunity to highlight their goods and services. The roundtable discussions will foster relationships with local vendors, enabling UMW to continue its goal of providing the best value at the best prices.
