Verizon works closely with our Prime Suppliers in establishing their Tier 2 goals and helping them seek qualified, Diverse Suppliers to subcontract with. Verizon’s Prime Suppliers are expected to honor their commitment to diversity by:


  • Actively including qualified Diverse Suppliers as subcontractors/ Tier 2 vendors in Verizon procurements
  • Ensuring that those Diverse Suppliers are certified
  • Giving consideration to mentoring Diverse Suppliers
  • Partnering with Verizon to host workshops designed to educate and increase direct and/or multi-tier procurement opportunities for Diverse Suppliers

 

Our Prime Suppliers’ commitment to Diverse Supplier inclusion is what makes our multi-tier program so successful.
