Supplier Diversity Program (SDP)
BRIDGE is a Massachusetts Supplier Diversity Program Provider
The Supplier Diversity Program (SDP), formerly known as the Affirmative Market Program (AMP), was established in 2010 to promote supplier diversity in public contracting. The program instituted policies to encourage the award of state contracts in a manner that develops and strengthens certified Minority and Women Business Enterprises (M/WBEs). In the hopes of increasing business opportunities for M/WBEs, BRIDGE is also certified as a Minority and Women-Run Non-Profit Organization (M/W/NPO).
Since the Commonwealth targets a portion of public dollars to M/W/NPO organizations, if your organization seeks funding for a project in the public or private sector, working in partnership with an SDP like BRIDGE could be required and may also enhance an organization's chance of being awarded a contract.
