Verizon's Annual Supplier Summit and Recognition Program were held Tuesday, March 27, 2012 in  Basking Ridge, New Jersey.  This year's program was hosted within Verizon's 3rd Annual Supplier Summit 
(an invitation-only event for Verizon's top suppliers). SCS transformed its Supplier Recognition Program by  creating the Summit, which expanded the focus beyond recognition to include strategy.   Leaders
from every business group within Verizon, shared strategies, goals and expectations for 2012.  The 2012  Supplier Recognition Program (SRP) recognized those suppliers of products and services who
exhibited outstanding performance during 2011. Verizon's SRP program is a corporate-wide program  facilitated by Verizon's Supply Chain Services' Supplier Relations Management and Quality
organization for which nominees are sought from all lines of business within Verizon.  

The program is an independent variable that serves as a motivator for suppliers to not only meet their performance objectives but exceed them.  This allows Verizon to provide our customers
