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.
