Supplier Diversity Program
At APTIM, we recognize and believe that small and diverse businesses play an important role in our economy and communities in which we work.
Throughout our history, we have consistently complied with federal regulations and our commercial client requirements that mandates governing small business and diverse companies through engagement and goal achievement. This supplier diversity contracting culture corresponds directly to APTIM’s focused and ongoing devotion to engagement with small and diverse companies as partners, subcontractors, and suppliers under our projects.
Supplier Diversity Program Policy Statement
Our dedication to empowering small businesses and diverse companies is outlined in the policy statement issued by APTIM’s CEO. This policy statement, available to all employees within the corporation, emphasizes the corporate commitment to an effective Supplier Diversity Program. It asserts that it is the practice of the company to identify and provide maximum practicable opportunities for small, minority, and socioeconomic businesses:
“APTIM has a Supplier Diversity Program that is a company-wide initiative and has produced exceptional results due to the strong dedication of management and the entire APTIM team. Elements of our award-winning program include diverse supplier recruitment, supplier development, mentoring, outreach, and comprehensive reporting. This strategy ensures that APTIM not only complies with all government regulations and commercial requirements, but that we offer small, small disadvantaged, women owned, HUBZone SB, veteran-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses opportunities to grow and succeed. Supplier diversity is an integral part of our overall diversity initiative. It’s not just good business; it’s the right thing to do. Everyone has a responsibility to engage in and promote APTIM’s commitment, policy, and procedures for the ongoing development of supplier diversity and to encourage small and minority business participation for all our projects.”
