Oklahoma State Use Program


South Central Industries, Inc is a proud vendor of the Oklahoma State Use Program, which is operated by Central Purchasing of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES).

The program benefits the Oklahoma community by alleviating the public assistance burden the state faces. As a result of the State Use Program, participants’ earned income rises, displacing government assistance and reducing the need for state and federal programs. The State Use Program is a self-supporting program that manages the contracts of South Central Industries, Inc and  provides employment for persons with disabilities. These employment opportunities reduce the need for state and federal funding (average of $2700 per individual). A 1 percent fee of any contract for products or services of the severely disabled shall be assessed against the qualified organization and deposited in the State Use Committee Revolving Fund, as created in Title 74 Section 3004.2. All of this provides the state with a 25 percent economic advantage and costs the state nothing.
