The bank will verify that your business is currently certified or self-certified as a diverse business enterprise.
Once we verify that your company meets the diverse business enterprise requirements, we will add your company to our supplier diversity database of potential suppliers. Your information will be reviewed by a Supplier Diversity Manager within 45 business days of receipt.
Please note, however, that outreach will only occur if there is an immediate interest for an upcoming sourcing project.
We will contact you should we need additional information, or when your company profile matches our need for products and services.
