The Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Program helps us:
Our Supplier Diversity & Inclusion initiative promotes opportunities for businesses that are at least 51% owned, operated, and certified by members of the following groups:
Register your business within our supplier diversity portal to be vetted for sourcing opportunities.
To register with us as a diverse supplier visit https://highmarkhealth.supplierone.co/
Certifications and portal registration are not to be considered as a guarantee of conducting business with Highmark. Supplier selection is based on several factors, including pricing, delivery capabilities, service, and innovation.
Our Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Program encourages our preferred suppliers to use diverse suppliers themselves.
First-tier contracts are between our company and the supplier. Second-tier contracts are between the first-tier supplier and its subcontractor(s). It is the first-tier supplier's responsibility to determine if its subcontractors are diverse suppliers and use diverse suppliers whenever possible.
At the end of each quarter, first-tier suppliers have 10 days to submit a second-tier diverse spend report.
