OUR STRATEGIC

PARTNERS

Strategic Partner organizations interested in promoting procurement opportunities for small business and creating equity initiatives are welcomed to work with the collective to establish a relationship with member businesses by becoming a "Collective Partner". Our Collective Partners are strongly recommended to participate in our Small Business Sourcing Pledge on a yearly basis. This pledge provides 3 hours of facilitation to key stakeholders within purchasing and procurement allowing them to rethink procedures, thresholds, micro-purchasing and establishing upfront and transparent guidelines for purchasing which allow both parties to maintain an effective partnership.

We then assist micro businesses on how to creating RFP's and proposals to better position thier offerings to partner firms.
