Register to Attend the Fair
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 utilizes a Diverse Supplier Collaboration Portal to register and communicate with current and potential diverse suppliers of goods and services. Once registered, suppliers are eligible to receive or be notified of invitations to participate in opportunities to provide goods/services through a competitive Bid/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.
