The Minority Serving Institutions-Community of Partners (MSI-COPC) held its first meeting on November 21, 2006. Approximately 25 representatives from the various federal agencies attended the meeting representing 15 federal agencies.
At that meeting the group agreed to establish the MSI-COPC as an interagency council, create and ratify a charter for the MSI-COPC, elect officers, and begin working and sharing information. We agreed to maintain transparency, establish liaisons with the White House Initiatives, and focus on the strengths that exist among the membership in working to increase the participation of MSIs in the competitive Federal procurement process.
Our work is to increase MSI participation in the work of Federal Agencies to assist in managing federally funded programs and expose the institutions to the federal procurement programs.
