Acurity is committed to including diverse suppliers in its contract portfolio. While many of them are smaller businesses, we ensure that they can provide the same quality and have the ability to meet demand. We’ve developed supplier diversity initiatives with the dual purpose of giving qualified diverse suppliers a platform for entering the marketplace more easily and helping member organizations reach their diversity utilization requirements.

Over the past year, Acurity has engaged over 200 diverse suppliers and helped get them on track for state certifications.
