LOCAL COMPUTER FIRM NOMINATED FOR THE 'SUPPLIER OF THE YEAR AWARD' BY THE MICHIGAN MINORITY BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL

 DETROIT, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Dopar Support Systems, Inc., a 9-year-old minority-owned and -operated computer products firm, has been nominated for the "Supplier Of The Year Award" for its outstanding ability to achieve excellence in the performance of its business activities. Major corporate users of Dopar's computer products were responsible for this nomination through the Michigan Minority Business Development Council (MMBDC). The local council has also chosen Dopar as its nomination for the national award through the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
 Dopar Support Systems, Inc., an authorized digital equipment corporation value-added retailer specializing in network sales and installation, will compete against other minority firms throughout the U.S. for this coveted award.
 The Michigan Minority Business Development Council is an organization which represents a cross-section of industry, locally and nationally. Its mission is to increase the amount and quality of business transacted with minority-owned firms throughout the state. The MMBDC serves as a regional purchasing council founded for the purpose of bringing together minority suppliers and the corporate business community for their mutual benefit.
 In the past, Dopar has been the recipient of other prestigious awards, such as, "Outstanding Minority Entrepreneur" from the Michigan Department of Commerce -- Minority Business Enterprise, and the "Global Connection Award," also from the Michigan Department of Commerce. The Global Award recognizes firms which have successfully engaged in promoting trade between the U.S. and foreign countries.
 The "Citizen of the Year Award" from the Detroit Public Schools holds a special place with Douglass M. Doggett Sr., president and CEO of Dopar, because of the company's development and implementation of a program to bring "at risk" male students in touch with positive African- American male images.
 The "10th Annual Awards Dinner" (local awards) will be held on Monday, Sept. 20, at the Renaissance Westin Hotel. The guest speaker will be the critically acclaimed Tony Brown, broadcast journalist. Final announcements and presentations for the National Awards will take place at the Gala Awards Banquet, Wednesday, Oct. 20, at the 1993 National Supplier Development Conference, Walt Disney World Dolphin Center, Orlando, Fla.
