Supplier Diversity Registration Process
You may register your company as an M/W/DVBE supplier with Applied Communication Sciences using the form referenced below. It is imperative that when you return your completed form to us that you include a copy of your company’s M/W/DVBE Certification performed by one of the third parties listed below. Our Supplier Diversity Office will only refer or recommend companies if a valid certification is on file.
What is an M/W/DVBE? A company that is 51% owned, operated, and controlled by an American minority, woman, or service disabled veteran.
Once all materials are received, you will be considered for inclusion in the competitive procurement process. This means if an opportunity exists your company offerings will be considered for matches with specific requirements. When a match occurs, you will be considered for Requests for Proposals. Please note that inclusion in the Supplier Diversity database does not guarantee business with Applied Communication Sciences.
Applied Communication Sciences recognizes only M/W/DVBE companies for commercial work that have been certified by a third-party certifying agency. Self-certifications cannot be verified, and to protect the integrity of our program, we do not allow companies to self-certify. Applied Communication Sciences recognizes certifications from the certifying agencies listed below.
