Supplier Diversity Processes That Work

Companies dedicated to building a supplier base that mirrors the diversity of their customers, employees and community are finding themselves in a better competitive position. Meaningful supplier diversity programs focus on developing long-term, mutually beneficial relationships — not quotas or preferences — and ensure qualified diverse business enterprises have an equal opportunity to compete in the marketplace.

TKT & Associates develops sustainable supplier diversity strategies based on best practices for promoting an inclusive corporate culture, enhancing business performance and driving bottom line value. Our diversity consultation and management services:

  • Establish and support implementation of inclusive procurement policies
  • Facilitate access to networks of qualified and certified MBEs, WBEs and DBEs
  • Provide supplier information based on location, industry or project scope
  • Determine targets and track diverse spend across multiple supplier tiers
  • Enhance awareness of your diverse procurement opportunities

To manage your diverse procurement activity, we offer TKTCATT™, our proprietary, web-based tracking system which streamlines the management of supplier diversity processes for businesses and contractors.

With an extensive database of certified disadvantaged, minority- and women-owned business enterprises, we can provide industry- or scope-specific supplier information to meet the needs of our clients.
