Those businesses that are certified by an approved agency as 51% owned, managed and controlled by a minority and/or woman (women) who are U.S. citizens.
What is the difference between CITGO's Supplier Diversity Initiative and CITGO's Supplier Diversity/Small Business Program?
The CITGO Supplier Diversity Initiative is a current outreach to minority- and/or woman-owned businesses through our membership in various organizations, including the National Minority Suppliers Development Council (NMSDC) and the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
The ongoing Supplier Diversity/Small Business Program includes small, veteran- owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, small disadvantaged, HUBzoned, minority-owned and woman-owned businesses.
Can I be considered for either the Supplier Diversity Initiative without a certification from an approved organization?
To be recognized as part of the CITGO Supplier Diversity Initiative minority- and/or woman-owned businesses must be certified by an approved agency. However, certification is not a condition of doing business with CITGO.
What is the benefit of being certified as a Supplier Diversity participant?
Increased opportunity to do business with CITGO on an equal basis, as we actively seek to increase the amount of business with certified supplier diversity businesses. Being certified with approved organizations allows diverse suppliers to be identified as such, which ensures greater potential to be used by companies with active initiatives targeting diverse businesses.
