How The Program Works
PPG’s diversity supplier office seeks diverse suppliers through purchasing organizations, participation in various trade show activities and utilization of diverse supplier directories.
Potential suppliers may be asked to participate in reverse auctions, requests for quotes, request for proposals and other forms of purchases. Suppliers are considered based on capabilities match.
Once the company capability profile is fully completed and entered into the system, the profile will be available online to the PPG buying community. A company will be contacted only if their capability profile matches a current need being quoted. Please note that an incomplete profile (inclusive of certification documentation) may hinder capability searches.
