USTAs Commitment to Supplier Diversity

It is the policy of the USTA to ensure that opportunities to participate in the bidding and procurement process are provided to certified diverse-owned businesses. Grounded in the organization’s culture of High Performance, this policy promotes diversity among the USTAs supplier base and is reflective of the desire to "Look like America" across all disciplines.

The effective implementation of our Supplier Diversity policy broadens the USTAs access to the widest selection of qualified supplier candidates, increases competition in the vendor selection process and demonstrates our resolve to have a positive impact on all communities in which we live, work and play.

Diverse-owned businesses are defined as businesses that are 51 percent owned, managed and controlled by women, the LGBT community or members of the following minority groups: African-American, Latino American, Asian-Pacific American, Asian-Indian American and Native American.

To register as a diverse-owned supplier with the USTA, businesses must be certified by a third party. The USTA recognizes third party certification by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (, the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce ( or that of federal, state or local governments. Veteran-owned companies also qualify with the submission of the DD-214 form.

To be considered, please complete USTA’s online registration form. Your completion of the form adds your company information to a database of potential suppliers and enables USTA to better understand your capabilities and qualifications. Please note: your completion of the form does not constitute approval as a supplier or guarantee any business with the USTA.
