Diverse Suppliers

The power of diversity and inclusion

Fannie Mae is committed to diversity in our supplier base, as evidenced by the millions of dollars we directly award to diverse suppliers annually.

Diverse suppliers must be documented by self-certification (PDF) or third-party agency certification.

Diverse suppliers must provide proof of diversity status in their supplier profile within our supplier management system, ProcureOne. Upload your completed certification within your ProcureOne supplier profile in the credentials tab, under “add diversity credentials."
