Welcome to Supplier Engagement

Louisiana State University is committed to fostering innovation, entrepreneurship and growing the Louisiana economy through the use of historically underutilized business (HUBs). The university's goal is to identify, align, strengthen and connect with Louisiana’s historically underutilized business enterprises. Creating opportunities for HUB business enterprises that result in a meaningful economic impact for Louisiana State University and the community.


The Supplier Engagement department, under the supervision of Finance & Administration Procurement, is responsible for managing the university's plan which includes implementation, monitoring and reporting. Our team works in conjunction with Procurement, Accounting Services, Facilities Development, Facilities Management and the Campus Community to ensure that procurement activities are conducted within the parameters of the plan.

If you are a HUB that is interested in providing services to LSU, please join our database of suppliers by following the supplier application process.

Growing Historically Underutilized Businesses
