We have recently started a Diversity Program. We are having a few difficulties identifying which purchases/services should be included in our percentage goal. Currently, we do not include sole/single purchases, but I'm not sure if this is best practice. Is there anyone that can advise me on how they are handling this? Any thoughts, comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

I'd suggest defininig your diversity reports in percentage of total dollars available for competition. Then split your total dollars at a higher level between dollars available for competiton vs totla expenditures.

It is a more realistic value for suppliers who want to knwo how much $ is available for them to compete for.

It also rasies a second question at a higher level - How can we increase our dollars available for competition.

I would be glad to hook you up with the lady that handles this area for our company. She is very well respected and very good. Maybe she could give you some ideas and direction.
