Minority Business Vendor Relationships
AACC has implemented the use of vendor authorization forms to improve the visibility of business conducted with minority vendors. Vendors provide information that helps AACC track its business with firms owned by minorities, women, veterans and veterans with disabilities, as well as small businesses and disadvantaged small businesses. As of June 2010, approximately 41 vendors in these categories provided services to AACC; 78% were women-owned, and 22% were minority-owned. Overall, this represents 8% of AACC's discretionary spending.
