Our Supplier Diversity Program Policy is to ensure inclusion of minority-, woman- and veteran-owned businesses in the competitive bidding process at Allstate in support of our commitment to provide quality products and services to our customers while delivering outstanding value to our shareholders.
The Supplier Diversity Program was established in 2003, and since then, we have steadily increased the procurement of goods and services with diverse suppliers. In 2012, Allstate spent $304.4 million with these diverse businesses. We are committed to increasing our spend with diverse suppliers again in 2013 and encourage diverse suppliers to complete the Prospective Supplier Registration process.
The role of the Sourcing & Procurement Solutions department at Allstate is to source commodities for the corporation. Our commodity managers are responsible for identifying qualified suppliers and to ensure the inclusion of minority-, woman- and veteran-owned businesses, in the competitive bidding process where possible at Allstate.
All minority, women and veteran businesses who are interested in doing business with Allstate should complete the Prospective Supplier Registration process. Completing the registration process allows our commodity manager to have access to information about your company used in our sourcing selection process. Visit Doing Business with Allstate for additional information.
