We recognize that having a diverse supplier pool is a major competitive advantage.
Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) May 28, 2014
Acclaris Inc., a leading provider of technology and services that power account-based consumer directed health plans for financial services, third party administrators, outsourcing providers, health plans, and exchanges, based in Tampa, FL, has announced the expansion of its Supplier Diversity Program as part of its formal Strategic Sourcing team.
According to Tanita Montgomery, Manager of Strategic Sourcing, the Acclaris Supplier Diversity mission is to proactively identify, build relationships with, and purchase goods and services from certified small businesses as well as enterprises owned by minorities, women, veterans and disabled persons. Acclaris gives consideration to suppliers in large measure based upon the following: technical capabilities, match of their goods/services to our customers' needs, past performance, quality management system, security control, financial stability and any other capabilities needed to support Acclaris’ business needs.
“As Acclaris continues to transform consumer directed healthcare and reimbursement offerings,” Dean Mason, CEO said, “we recognize that having a diverse supplier pool is a major competitive advantage and a powerful business tool. We are committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships with diverse suppliers who can help Acclaris drive quality and cost initiatives.”
To increase the pool of diverse suppliers, Acclaris is asking current and prospective suppliers who hold any small, minority, woman, veteran or disabled business enterprise certification to forward a copy of their documentation to StrategicSourcing@acclaris.com. Supplier provided designations will be recorded in the Acclaris supplier database. Prospective suppliers should also forward a description of the services that they can provide to Acclaris.
Companies that are not diverse suppliers, but who have an established supplier diversity initiative, are encouraged to send an email to StrategicSourcing(at)acclaris(dot)com, describing their program’s success and utilization. Acclaris will include these companies in its database, and designate them as a “supplier diversity participant.”
