About: Supplier Diversity Policy
At TechnoSphere, we believe that supplier diversity provides us with a significant position of strength in which to support our clients and perform in the markets we serve. Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we strive to obtain high-quality goods and services from minority and women-owned businesses. We believe this program has the potential of creating better partners, stronger customers, and economic growth for our clients, our business partners, and our customers and employees. The policy ensures strict compliance with all regulatory agency requirements as well as with federal, state, and local procurement regulations and programs.
In order to do business under our Supplier Diversity Program, prospective suppliers must be certified by a third-party agency. The three main agencies we recognize are listed below.
National Minority Supplier Development Council
Women's Business Enterprise National Council
U.S. Small Business Administration
Please note that we actively pursue and recruit suppliers who are certified as minority and/or women-owned. The term “minority- or women-owned business” is defined as a company certified to be at least fifty-one (51%) owned and operated by minority or women group members. For the purposes of this definition, minority group members are African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native American Indians, American Eskimos and Southeast Asians.
