Supplier Diversity Program
Liquid PC, Inc is proud to announce we are now federally certified in the Women Owned Small Business Program. This certification creates significant opportunities for women entrepreneurs and provides a level playing field where WOSB can compete and bid on all federal contracting. The WOSB program authorizes contracting officers to specifically limiting, or setting aside, certain requirements for competition solely amongst woman-owned small businesses.
The key to LiquidPC's Supplier Diversity program is equitable business practices and a commitment to social responsibility. Our mission is to enhance our program through sustainable relationships with diverse businesses. We have built a world-class supply base that has benefited our customers, consumers, employees and communities where we live and work. Supplier Diversity is a business program that encourages the use of: minority-owned, women owned, veteran owned, LGBT-owned , service disabled veteran owned, historically underutilized business, and SBA defined small business vendors as suppliers. Benefits of doing business with a diverse supplier:
- Market Acess: by contracting with minority owned businesses, your corporation or organization will develop relationships and gain access to a new community. This includes new market segments and potential consumers.
- Economic Development: Establishing contracts with diverse suppliers helps your enterprise grow.
- Public Relations: Working with a diverse supplier gives a company a favorable public image and is seen as a form of corporate social responsibility.
- Price: Being a diverse supplier creates competition for non-diverse suppliers. This could lead to lower prices, better discounts, more choices and better quality contracts.
How WBENC Helps Companies & Women-Owned Businesses. It’s those managers closest to the work who are really the key to success. If you address more of what people are concerned about—whether the belief is that there is no supplier out there or that suppliers are not capable or that funding is not available, whatever that is—you can address it. You may find that that belief is not the case, but if it is, you can develop that capability—then it pulls through and it is successful.
