Supplier Diversity

A strong supplier base is essential to the success of our company. All of our contracts for goods and services are based upon the best combination of total cost, quality, and service. This provides a level playing field to all potential and existing suppliers.

Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we build alliances with businesses that are owned and controlled by women, veterans, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ community. We are proud to make a positive impact on these businesses and our community.
