Vendor Certification -- Why Become Certified?
Various organizations offer to “certify” businesses in several categories. Obtaining certification for your business offers several significant benefits to you and your organization including the following:
- Provides prospective customers or clients with independent support and verification as to the ownership status of your company.
- Qualifies your company for special consideration or participation under various supplier diversity programs.
- Demonstrates your company’s commitment to quality and the community, and creates visibility for your company to prospective customers, clients, or business partners.
- Reduces the number of intrusive inquiries into your company’s ownership and business structure to the one certifying agency.
Many organizations, including the HCA Central Atlantic Supply Chain, require certification for all minority-owned or woman-owned enterprises to be considered as part of the Supplier Diversity Program.
