Supplier Diversity Program

Our goal is to promote, develop, and encourage the use of minority-, women-, and disabled veteran-owned businesses (MWDVBEs) while maintaining best-in-class supply chain practices for obtaining goods and services.

The following criteria is used to evaluate suppliers in this program:

  • Provides appropriate value-added goods and services
  • Financial stability
  • Ability to grow
  • Total cost/price
  • References and proven track record
  • Meets supplier requirements as outlined in the Global Supplier Qualification Questionnaire
