Division of Supplier Diversity

The Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA), Division of Supplier Diversity (DSD) has transitioned from paper certification applications to electronic certification applications to better serve our minority business enterprises (MBE), women's business enterprises (WBE), and Indiana Veteran Owned Small Businesses (IVOSB). The electronic certification system launched February 27, 2021, and we no longer accept paper applications. If you submit a paper application, the application along with all supporting documents will be shredded. If you would like the application and documents sent back to you, please note a postage fee will apply.

The IDOA DSD acts on behalf of the State of Indiana to actively promote, monitor and enforce the standards for certification of minority, women, and veteran business enterprises. The Division was established in 1983 by the State of Indiana when Indiana Code 4-13-16.5 became law. Its mission is to provide equal opportunity to minority, women, and veteran owned enterprises in the state’s procurement and contracting process. Subsequent to the statute being enacted, regulations were developed to govern the program and were made part of the Indiana Administrative Code as 25 IAC-5 and 25 IAC 9. Three core functions carry out the mission of DSD:
  • Certification
  • Contract Compliance
  • Business Outreach and Development
