Supplier Diversity

FirstEnergy's Supplier Diversity Program provides opportunities in a competitive environment for small, woman-owned; minority-owned; HUBZone; veteran-owned; and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses.

Service, quality, and competitive pricing will continue to be the driving force in our marketplace. FirstEnergy recognizes the importance of supplier diversity in helping us reach all of our corporate goals.

In addition to our commitment to supplier diversity, we comply with all laws and regulations that require the inclusion of a diverse vendor base.

If you have not done so already, we strongly recommend you register as a small and diverse business - as defined by the federal System for Award Management (SAM) website, (formerly Central Contractor Registration (CCR)). Only registered vendors can be included in program reports FirstEnergy files with federal and state agencies.

"FirstEnergy’s dynamic Supplier Diversity Program increases opportunities for minority-owned and diverse businesses to grow. Diverse suppliers represent some of the fastest growing entrepreneur segments for racially and ethnically diverse business owners, women, LGBTQ+, veteran and service-disabled veterans. By doing business with these suppliers, FirstEnergy fosters the development of these diverse business enterprises and strengthens the communities we serve across our five-state service area."
