Corporate supplier and general contractor reporting

Novant Health has developed a supply chain reporting tool to provide insight into the diversity-spending activities of key corporate suppliers. As a Novant Health corporate supplier, your company is required to support our efforts of developing a diverse business environment for services, capital and clinical efforts by reporting downstream spending data relative to the use of historically underutilized businesses.

Novant Health requires supplier diversity reporting of Tier II spending within 30 days of the close of each quarter. Please complete the appropriate Supplier Diversity Spend Report Form (contractors or suppliers) and email it to Kevin J. Price at kjprice@novanthealth.org for additional information or clarification.

Developing mutually-beneficial and successful partnerships

Novant Health is committed to developing mutually-beneficial and successful partnerships with diverse suppliers by incorporating them into the everyday process of category reviews and product or service bids.

Through the Novant Health Supplier Diversity Registration Process, vendors are encouraged to register in our database, which provides an online supplier data-management portal to connect buyers with certified suppliers, the online purchasing people in major corporation databases, and corporate supplier-diversity seminars.

Novant Health views supplier diversity as an important part of its diversity commitment. It is the intent of Novant Health to be an industry leader at providing historically underutilized businesses the opportunity to participate in the procurement process at both Tier I and Tier II levels. Historically underutilized suppliers and contractors include those that are owned by women, people with disabilities, veterans and ethnic minorities, such as African American, Latino, Asian, Native American, Alaskan Native and Pacific Islander.

Since 2006, Novant Health has been engaged in supplier diversity development. We have networked with business owners, community leaders, chambers of commerce, elected officials and nonprofit organizations, while raising awareness of our commitment to building a diverse supplier network. Over the last decade, we have spent over $500 million with over 400 diverse suppliers.

In addition, Novant Health's supplier-diversity initiative reaches out to other resources through networking and sponsorships, including the following organizations:
