Text:  The State is committed to improving the number of minority-owned enterprises that do business with the State of Ohio. In alignment with this statewide objective the Ohio Department of Administrative Services recently issued an RFP and awarded contracts to several Ohio certified minority business enterprises (MBEs) for partnering with the State of Ohio’s LARs (Dell and SHI) to provide Microsoft software and software assurance to State agencies and local Ohio governments. The Ohio Department of Administrative Services awarded the MBE Microsoft Large Account Reseller Partners Contracts (0A1131) on May 19, 2014 to the following companies:

Brown Enterprise Solutions (Dell) Contract 011131-1:
Krista Gardner::

Toula Delinikos:

Ventech Solutions (SHI) Contract 011131-3:
Chris Stein:
614-751-1167, ext. 225:

The following guidance applies to the MBE Contracts established::

• Agencies may begin using the MBE Contracts effective May 20, 2014.:

• If seeking MBE set aside credit, agencies must purchase through MBE Contractor(s) associated with the agency’s current LAR.:

• Agencies are not required to solicit multiple quotes from MBE Contractors.:

• If any agency is interested in switching LARs there is a 90-day process to execute that change.:

• The current LARs will be heavily involved with their MBE Contractor in delivering services and as such agencies will interact with both the MBE Contractor and the LAR.:

• MBE Pricing is comprised of a markup to current LAR pricing under Contract (0A1108). :

• LAR pricing is updated monthly on the State’s Procurement Website.:

If you have any questions regarding Contract 0A1131, please contact Valerie Piccininni at
