Fairfax County Government spending with small, women-owned and minority-owned (SWaM) businesses totaled more than $275 million during Fiscal Year 2010, as reported by the Fairfax County Department of Purchasing and Supply Management (DPSM). This represents almost half of the county’s expenditures, or 48.8 percent.

“Fairfax County’s Supplier Diversity Program is a model for creating opportunities and promoting fairness in the government procurement process.  These strategic partnerships are essential to promoting our economic growth,” said Cathy Muse, DPSM director and the county’s purchasing agent.

Qualified SWaM and other vendors interested in doing business with Fairfax County should register with eVA, Virginia's electronic procurement portal.  DPSM advertises through the eVA website and posts current solicitations online.

The Fairfax County Supplier Diversity Program works to improve business and economic opportunities for SWaM businesses. For information, contact Michael Estelle, supplier diversity coordinator, at 703-324-3104, TTY 711.
