The Supplier Diversity Development Council (SDDC) is dedicated to forging effective working relationships between minority, service-disabled veteran, and woman-owned businesses (M/DV/WBEs) and New Jersey public utilities and the Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) on matters relating to methods of reporting, measuring, and assessing the development of these relationships
The SDDC serves as a resource to identify "best practices" and to promote related support activities and the seminars for both companies and M/DV/WBEs. In order to enhance the advancement of mutual goals, the SDDC promotes the adoption of "best practices" and processes that provide equal access for M/DV/WBEs to companies.
The SDDC's commitment to its mission will enhance supplier diversity among New Jersey companies, resulting in the development of a strong economy and a productive environment for the growth of business throughout the state.
"It is essential that we create and maintain an environment that fosters opportunity, and that we work with minority, service-disabled veteran, and women owned businesses to make sure that there are no barriers to those who wish to do business in utility related fields."
- Robert M. Hanna, President of
the NJ Board of Public Utilities
