The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco is committed to ensuring the fair inclusion of minority- and women-owned businesses in the Bank’s procurement efforts. This commitment includes promoting access to business opportunities through our outreach efforts and providing training and orientation to familiarize suppliers with the Bank’s business needs and procurement procedures. Our Supplier Diversity Program is a collaborative effort involving the Bank, the communities we serve, and a diverse supplier community, including small, minority-owned, and women-owned enterprises.
We seek to enhance our partnerships with advocacy groups and chambers of commerce to identify suppliers whose expertise match our organization’s needs and encourage interested suppliers or groups to visit our Supplier Information page and email their company’s information to be considered for upcoming procurement opportunities. Our outreach efforts help us understand the business challenges faced by diverse suppliers and guide our technical assistance programs.
