Acurity is committed to including diverse suppliers in our contract portfolio. We ensure that these suppliers, many of which are smaller businesses, provide the same quality and ability to meet demand as larger, more established suppliers. We’ve developed supplier diversity initiatives with the dual purpose of giving qualified suppliers a platform for entering the marketplace more easily and helping member organizations reach their diversity use requirements.
In 2014, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo raised the goal for minority- and women-owned enterprise state contracting use to 30 percent—the highest target in the nation. Acurity has a Diverse Supplier Initiative, which can help our New York members reach this target. While our current state-specific outreach is limited to New York and New Jersey, we are prepared to offer members in other regions of the country the same high level of support.
