Vendor/Supplier Diversity

We actively promote opportunities for certified minority, women, and disabled veteran business enterprises. Partnering with diverse suppliers helps us ensure that we fulfill our customers’ needs and expectations and encourages our other suppliers to do the same.

We promote vendor/supplier diversity by:

  • Creating a level playing field for all qualified businesses that want to provide services or products to us.
  • Identifying opportunities for diverse businesses to bid on an equal basis.
  • Promoting an internal culture that embraces working with diverse vendors, suppliers and business partners.
