To be an effective conduit for certified diverse suppliers: identifying, introducing and promoting opportunities to compete for Sprint's business, resulting in increased spend annually.
Small and large diverse suppliers must self-certify their companies with the System for Award Management (SAM) at www.SAM.gov, at no cost. Other certifying agencies, for small and large diverse suppliers include, but are not limited to MPMSDC.org; NMSDC.org; WBENC.org, SBA.gov (8a and Hubzone suppliers); NGLCC.org; California based suppliers should certify at www.thesupplierclearinghouse.com
Sprint is committed to the growth and success of our Supplier Diversity initiatives and continues to explore and increase opportunities with a diverse range of suppliers. Sprint actively seeks additional opportunities to meet with suppliers and to increase external outreach activities.
The Sprint Supplier Diversity Department works closely with Sprint's Supply Chain Management (SCM) and sales team to include small certified minority, woman, hubzone, gay and lesbian, veteran and service-disabled veteran owned businesses in the purchasing process.
Sprint's purchasing functions and processes are as varied as the products and services Sprint procures. Typically, when a division or department within Sprint needs to purchase a product or service, the appropriate buyer is notified and the bid process begins. Sprint seeks suppliers who can offer quality, service, delivery and competitive pricing. The supplier selected will provide the best value overall.
