Supplier Diversity is a key element in most corporate and governmental procurement policies. Collecting and managing certifications to verify that suppliers meet Minority and/or Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) criteria are very important to the success of your company’s Supplier Diversity Program.

Certificate Collecting, Scanning, Monitoring, and Tracking
BCS can help your business by collecting, scanning, and monitoring MWBE certifications and track certificate expirations. BCS sends suppliers notifications prior to the expiration of their MWBE certificates as a reminder to keep their records updated. If they are not updated, BCS will notify clients of any expired certificates.
It can be time consuming and overwhelming for a business to apply for and manage these important certifications. Business Credentialing Services can help you stay compliant with federal regulations and also in accordance with your own company’s policies, mission statement, and goals.
