We are pleased to announce that NPI Services, Inc. has been certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Supplier Clearinghouse for the Utility Supplier Diversity Program of the California Public Utilities Commission (whew!). Of course, NPI Services, Inc. has always been a woman-owned business, but undertaking the rigorous process to become a certified WBE through the CPUC Supplier Clearinghouse, benefits many of our clients beyond those on the list of communication providers, energy suppliers, and other utilities governed by the CPUC.
Your company may well be among those that recognize the CPUC Supplier Clearinghouse certification as “good as gold” to validate bona fide WBEs, as well as for minority and disabled veteran-owned business enterprises. SupplierGATEWAY® not-for-profit partner Diversity Information Resources, which provides Supplier Diversity portals on the websites of Raytheon, Boeing, and a variety of other companies and sports franchises, uses NPI’s recent CPUC certification as proof of WBE status for its portals. NPI has also been a long-standing self-certified woman-owned small business (WOSB) registered with the SBA.
So how does this benefit you? At the project level, you will still receive the highest quality service and attention to detail that NPI clients expect. Additionally, you will further your organization’s targeted goals for Supplier Diversity. When you start that single PO to NPI which can do so much for you and your work, let the purchasing manager know that NPI Services, Inc, is a certified WBE. That way, you let others in the organization enjoy the icing on the already rich and delicious NPI cake!
