Opportunities for small businesses

UDRI is committed to helping small and small disadvantaged businesses to grow and succeed. We believe it makes good business sense to work with small business entrepreneurs whose participation in the local and national economy fosters innovation, creativity, and competition.

Per federal procurement regulations and Public Law 85-536, UDRI utilizes Small, Small Disadvantaged, Small Woman-Owned, Small Veteran-Owned, Small Disabled-Veteran-Owned, Native American-Owned, Native Alaskan-Owned, HBCU/MI, and Small HUBZone Business concerns as subcontractors, consultants, and vendors for materials, supplies, and services.

If you are a business interested in partnering with or supplying to UDRI, please go to the University of Dayton Supplier Portal page to create an account. The registration process takes about 20 minutes to complete and requires key information including contact information, company addresses, business classifications and W-9 forms. The W-9 form can be created within the supplier portal or uploaded.
