Standard Purchasing Agreement Uh

Uh recognized the potential to use this construction spending for Cleveland`s economic growth and set ambitious goals for diversified, local purchasing with the 2010 vision: 80 percent of spending was to be made by local and regional businesses in Northeast Ohio, 15 percent for minority-owned businesses, and 5 percent for women-owned businesses. UH was verified through independent third-party oversight and exceeded these goals and integrated these processes into their overall supply chain practices, setting a new standard for how large institutions should do business in Cleveland.2Farzana Serang, J.
