Quest Diagnostics is committed to diversity among our suppliers and recognizes the important contributions made by small businesses to our economy.
We believe that working with large and small businesses including diverse suppliers supports our business objectives. Strengthening our small business communities contributes to the overall economic growth and expansion of our markets. It is also a critical element of the company’s overall diversity vision.
It is our policy to provide fair and equitable opportunities for qualified small businesses, including those owned by Minorities, Women-Owned, Veteran-Owned, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned, Small Disadvantaged, LGBT and HUBZone businesses and to encourage participation of these suppliers in our procurement activities. We are attempting to reach out to your small business to determine whether you may fall into one of these categories.
Quest encourages small businesses to register with the Small Business Administration/System for Award Management (SBA/SAM). To help make this process easier, we've created a Small Business Roadmap to Becoming a Certified Small Business.
