Procurement process & expectations

Our expectations of suppliers

Allstate is committed to providing quality products and services to our customers while delivering outstanding value to our shareholders.

We expect our suppliers to:

  • Provide documentation of their ability to furnish products and services that meet the highest quality standard.
  • Submit bids and/or responses in writing to Allstate RFIs, RFQs, and RFPs and to honor their submitted pricing.
  • Guarantee adequate financial resources to produce and deliver any product or service to Allstate when awarded a bid.
  • Conduct business with the highest standard of integrity and comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.
  • Consistently provide an adequate volume and variety of product and ensure distribution and shipment of all items to any Allstate or Allstate affiliate location.
  • Deal directly with the appropriate Sourcing & Procurement Solutions Category Manager. Suppliers who circumvent a category manager's authority may jeopardize their right to conduct business with Allstate.
In addition, permission to call on Allstate does not guarantee that a supplier will be allowed to bid on Allstate contracts.

Our business relationships with suppliers

Suppliers can expect Allstate employees to conduct themselves in a fair and ethical manner. It's against our policy for any Allstate employee to accept, request, suggest or require a gift, payment, or any other benefit, financial or otherwise, from a supplier as a condition of conducting business with Allstate.

Prospective suppliers

Suppliers wishing to pursue business with us will need to complete a registration form that lets our category managers know they are interested in doing business with Allstate. This form also provides information about our sourcing selection process.

Entry into the prospective Allstate supplier database does not ensure that your company will be awarded business from Allstate or that your company will be contacted. It does allow corporate decision-makers to identify qualified prospective suppliers who may be able to meet their product or service requirements for business operations. An Allstate category manager will contact you if we determine there's a need for your product or service.

Allstate provides equal opportunity to suppliers and does not discriminate against minority, female or veteran-owned businesses in the competitive bidding process.
