Supplier Diversity

The Grants Shared Services Center encourages the participation of small and minority businesses, women’s business enterprises, and labor surplus area firms in all bid opportunities.

Bid Submissions

All bids must be submitted to the Grants Shared Services Center to the attention of the point of contact (POC) in accordance with the bid submission instructions listed in the bid posting.


All questions and communications pertaining to bid postings must be directed to the POC listed in the bid posting (reference the Bid No. and other pertinent bid information in any communications). Contact with any other Ohio State faculty, staff and/or students may result in a disqualification of the vendor. Any oral communication will be considered unofficial and non-binding, and will not change or alter the bid opportunity.
