Supplier Diversity


The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is committed to strengthening the economy and improving our communities, and supplier diversity plays a critical role in how we do that. We provide access and opportunity to diverse suppliers to participate in procurement and contracting processes throughout the Bank’s supply chain.


At the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, we believe three things about supplier diversity: It’s about access and opportunity, it brings value to the Bank and our communities and it’s everybody’s job.

What Is a Diverse Supplier?

The Bank promotes the inclusion of a diverse pool of suppliers, including, but not limited to, small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses, in its procurement and contracting opportunities.

Certifying & Resource Organizations

We collaborate with organizations that share our commitment to diverse supplier development, help us build inclusive procurement practices and provide various business development resources to diverse suppliers.

External Outreach

Outreach to external supplier diversity organizations is a key part of our supplier diversity development strategy.
