  2. Open your account on Biznet and complete the supplier diversity renewal application.
  3. Application will be reviewed and assessed for eligibility. Companies may be subject to an onsite review during the application process. State certification is valid for 2 years.

Once certified, if your company makes any organizational changes, you must communicate these changes in writing to the DAS Supplier Diversity Program Team. We will determine if the change(s) impacts your company’s certification eligibility as defined by the Connecticut General Statutes and/or applicable regulations. Failure to communicate changes may result in de-certification or denial of re-certification to the program.
