Artech, as a women- and minority-owned company, is doubly committed to nurturing other diverse organizations. To support this, the company is committed to its Vendors-in-Partnership (VIP) program that identifies, qualifies, and develops diverse suppliers. This is also done as a means to support its client-partners’ utilization goals while providing a wider breadth of services and skill sets.
Supplier Diversity Policy
Artech’s supplier diversity policy affirms that certified diverse suppliers are provided the maximum opportunity to participate in providing products and services to its clients.
Artech is committed to continuing its purchasing initiatives from minority, women, disabled, veteran, and small businesses. By including qualified diverse suppliers, the company continues to sharpen its own competitive edge – providing its clients with cost effective, innovative solutions.
Artech will continue to lead the effort in recognizing the economic importance of utilizing diverse suppliers in the communities where its employees, clients, and consultants work and live.
Artech has an aggressive utilization goal for the use of certified diverse suppliers as part of its total direct procurement spend. This goal is apportioned between minority, woman, small, socially and economically disadvantaged, disabled, and veteran-owned business concerns.
Supplier Partnership Opportunities
As part of its client engagement policy as well as internal diversity mentorship initiatives, Artech works with a group of chosen and pre-qualified organizations to meet the delivery Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements for its enterprise clientele.
