National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (NMSDC) 2015 Supplier of the Year Award (SOTY)
We were nominated by the Northrop Grumman Corporation supplier diversity team to participate in the 2015 National Minority Supplier Development Council's (NMSDC) local Supplier of the Year (SOTY) awards competition.
Annually, NMSDC Corporate Members nominate NMSDC - certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs), "who distinguish themselves and their business for outstanding performance in their contractual obligations", to compete for the NMSDC SOTY award. According to the Southern California Minority Supplier Development Council's (SCMSDC) Board Chair, Rick Hobbs, "only three percent of the council's certified MBEs are nominated for their outstanding work with corporate members. These nominees are among an elite group of companies."
Even though we did not win the SOTY awards competition, we are honored to be a nominee and very proud to support supplier diversity and Northrop Grumman Corporation's Global Supplier Diversity Program.
