Andrews International maintains an equitable and competitive business environment while forging partnerships that benefit our customers and our communities.
Andrews International is committed to building a diverse supplier base reflective of the communities we serve. We make a good faith effort to develop relationships with a variety of small disadvantaged businesses for procurement of goods and ancillary services. We par-ticipate in nearly 300 active subcontracts with small disadvantaged business enterprises.
In keeping with this commitment, we adhere to a comprehensive nondiscrimination policy and work to develop procedures and initiatives to ensure that all suppliers in our procurement programs receive fair consideration. Andrews International's supplier diversity manager acts as a liaison between diverse suppliers and all staff who have procurement responsibilities, continually reaffirming our commitment to diversity while developing procurement programs that are mutually beneficial for our customers, suppliers, and our organization.
Our supplier diversity program enables us to fulfill contracts with set-asides by partnering with small disadvantaged business enterprises. We work with our customers to set and meet target supplier diversity goals. whether the goals involve diversity spend for goods or services. Suppliers are thoroughly vetted, and our policy and diverse business initiatives, along with those of our clients, are shared with suppliers at all phases of the procurement or service implementation process.
In those instances where subcontracting of services is required to meet customer diversity spend goals, the Andrews International leadership team is actively and personally involved in all aspects of service delivery. When we align or partner with an external resource, stringent measures are taken to ensure that partner skills, capabilities, and necessary qualifications are in place and in alignment with our standards.
We provide security services throughout the United States and abroad through our network of diverse alliance partners. With vetted partners experienced in strategic and tactical roles in corporate security, business management, government (US and International), law enforcement, and legal fields, we are able to provide a range of services to meet diversity goals, all managed by Andrews International as a single-source contract. We welcome opportunities to partner with self-certified small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs) as well as those certified by the Small Business Administration (SBA) under a variety of programs:
