We are committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our business, while ensuring high-quality, innovative and cost-effective products and services. Through our supplier diversity program, we actively seek to provide diverse and small businesses an opportunity to participate in procurement activities. We look to partner with, grow and develop diverse businesses in our supplier base.
We recognize that successfully maintaining a robust, diverse supplier base requires commitment and teamwork throughout the organization. We encourage our employees to support these efforts and ensure diverse suppliers have an opportunity to compete for our business.
We will track and share our progress as we work collaboratively with small and diverse businesses to empower our communities where our employees, customers, agents and brokers live and work.
Goals of the Program
- Increase procurement opportunities for and our total spend with diverse suppliers that are capable, innovative and qualified to provide high-quality goods and services aligned with our business strategy.
- Build a diverse network of qualified suppliers with diverse expertise and talent within the communities in which we operate.
- Ensure fair and impartial consideration is given to diverse suppliers to compete for and win our business as a core component of our strategic sourcing and procurement process.
- Maintain and use a current directory of qualified diverse enterprises as a resource for identifying potential participants in Requests for Proposal (RFPs) and procurement opportunities.
Arch looks to respected certifying organizations to ensure we prioritize work with qualified suppliers. We are open to partnering with any potential supplier, regardless of size. However, to be considered a diverse supplier, a company must meet certain basic qualifications.
Register as a Diverse Supplier
If you qualify as a diverse business and possess a current certification from a certifying agency, you are invited to register on our partner portal.
Begin Your Registration
By registering through our onboarding partner portal SupplierOne (link opens in a new window), you will be entered into our supplier database. If we have an opportunity related to your submission, we may contact your organization for further information. A submission to the database does not guarantee a business opportunity. Completing this profile will allow supplier information to be searchable for inclusion in procurement and sourcing events.
If you are already registered, it is important that you keep your company’s profile and diversity certification current.
