Punchout Orders - Special Delivery Instructions for Abundant180

Please contact Mary Determan ( prior to placing these orders. You must receive confirmation that the special delivery instructions have been received before proceeding with your punchout order.

Strategic Sourcing - New D&I (Diversity and Inclusion) Bid Factor

The Department of Administration has introduced a new SWIFT bid factor to further promote diversity and inclusion in State contracting. The goal is to identify suppliers who may qualify for certification in the State’s Targeted Group Program but have not yet applied.

Moving forward, as part of any solicitation posted within SWIFT, a potential responder will be presented with questions regarding whether they are likely eligible but not yet certified as a Targeted Group business. Using reporting tools in SWIFT, the Office of State Procurement will be able to connect with those suppliers that may qualify for the program and provide them with an application to pursue certification.

What do you need to do as an agency buyer?  No action is required on your part. Do not delete this new bid factor in your SWIFT Event. 

If you are aware of a vendor that is not currently certified, but may be eligible, please send a link to the vendor’s website or contact information to .

If you have any questions regarding this new bid factor, please reach out to

The sales and use tax rate changes apply to sales made on or after April 1, 2023. They will be in addition to all other taxes in effect.
