Supplier Diversity

At UNC Charlotte, we are committed to supplier diversity. We actively foster the inclusion and growth of Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) by promoting their recruitment and engagement. Our primary goal is to ensure that these businesses, owned and operated by minorities, women and individuals with disabilities, have access to purchasing and contracting opportunities within our institution. Our employees can easily identify and support approved HUB vendors using the resources on this page. Meanwhile, interested vendors can learn more about becoming a University HUB supplier.

To be classified as a HUB, a business must be at least 51% owned and operated by one of these designated minority groups. Diversity in our supplier base strengthens our community and enhances the quality of our services.

Employees can help the University achieve its goal of increasing support for local HUBs by ordering office supplies and more from FSIoffice. FSIoffice is a woman-owned business located in Charlotte, NC. They provide a variety of office solutions and are an excellent choice for all your office supply needs. Employees can find their punch-out catalog in 49er Mart and place an order today!

HUB suppliers offer a wide range of goods and services, including office supplies, furniture, and I.T. equipment and supplies. These vendors have been approved by the State and/or the University and are our recommended HUB suppliers. Employees are encouraged to contact them for quotes and submit their orders through 49er Mart. There are no bidding restrictions with these vendors.

Reference the HUB Furniture Suppliers on State Contract and the contracted HUB suppliers on State and University contracts.
