Awards Incentive & Recognition (AIR) Program

Air program

The Supplier Diversity Awards Incentive and Recognition (AIR) program is designed to recognize University departments, as well as individual staff persons; that demonstrate exemplary efforts in supporting the University’s Supplier Diversity goals and Targeted Group Business (TGB) Program.  Through the AIR program, Colleges, Schools and Administrative Units across the University system "compete" at the RRC level to earn financial rewards based on their decisions to purchase goods and services from TGB’s (certified minority/women/disabled owned businesses).  Individual staff will also be recognized and rewarded for their work in assisting and creating opportunities for Targeted Businesses.

This program is managed by the University of Minnesota’s Office for Business and Community Economic Development (OBCED)

University of Minnesota Colleges, Schools, and Administrative Department's who wish to participate in the AIR Program must complete and submit this form.
