"F. The Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity shall include employment services organizations within the development and operation of any state procurement program or program goal and targets for small, women-owned, and minority-owned businesses consistent with requirements in the the Code of Virginia requiring the Department to certify employment service organizations."

As the Department currently supports 5.0 FTE within the Office of the Secretary of Commerce and Trade, it is assumed that resources are available to meet all compliance costs.)
