The objectives of the Cubic Defense Applications Supplier Diversity program are:
1. To ensure that small businesses of all type are given a fair opportunity and consideration to participate in the subcontracting process.
2. Provide all Cubic Defense Applications personnel who are involved in the acquisition of materials and services the adequate tools and training that will enhance their ability to meet the company’s supplier diversity goals and objectives.
It is Cubic Defense Applications policy that its business units will conduct socioeconomic subcontracting programs in recognition of compelling moral, social and economic necessity. It is also Cubic Defense Applications policy to facilitate the achievement of its negotiated subcontracting goals by developing the capabilities of, and pursuing opportunities to award subcontracts and other procurements to, small, small disadvantaged, women, HUBZone, veteran, service disabled veteran, and historically black and tribally owned colleges and universities, and other minority institutions
In furtherance of these objectives, Cubic Defense Applications will institute a proactive supplier diversity program designed to develop the growth and competitive capabilities that will enable such businesses to become responsible suppliers. This program will be consistent with Cubic Defense Applications’ policy of considering all subcontractors and suppliers fairly in competition for requirements falling within their demonstrated capabilities.
This policy applies to government contracts and, to the extent practicable, commercial programs.
