The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) recently posted guidance and suggested templates for hospitals, which must annually submit a report to the office on their minority, women, LGBT, and disabled veteran business enterprise procurement efforts. The first supplier diversity report is due July 1. Hospitals can request a 30-day extension for reporting and may email their request to [email protected].
Under Health and Safety Code Section 1339.85-1339.87, hospitals with operating expenses of $50 million or more, and a licensed hospital with operating expenses of $25 million or more that is part of a hospital system, are required to annually submit a report OSHPD, which is responsible for developing and administering the program to collect and post hospital supplier diversity reports.
