Supplier Diversity Overview

For more than 30 years, Washington Gas has managed a well respected and growing Supplier Diversity program. It is our corporate policy to support diverse and protected-class businesses. To our company, seeking and procuring goods and services from a diverse set of vendors is simply a sound business practice that produces competition in the marketplace, and provides benefits to our customers, the community and our employees.

Over the past six years, Washington Gas has been named as one of the 40 Best Companies for Diversity in Black Enterprise magazine. Our efforts resulted in significant increases in total system procurement from minority businesses, and we continue our efforts to foster supplier diversity in our operations.

On Feb. 6, 2009, Washington Gas and other Maryland utilities signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Maryland Public Service Commission. The MOU established a long-term goal of 25% for each utility to spend with minority, women and service-disabled veteran business enterprises. The MOU also requires utilities to report the team's annual accomplishments and activities in promoting their supplier diversity programs. This report details the amount spent for goods and services and the overall diverse supplier spend for the Company. On Feb. 15, 2012, Washington Gas and other District of Columbia utilities signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the District of Columbia Public Service Commission. By signing the MOU's, Washington Gas further demonstrates its commitment to supplier diversity and challenges the company to develop initiatives that will cultivate the success of its vendors.

At Washington Gas, we understand that our responsibilities extend beyond our customers. By having a Supplier Diversity Program, we made a commitment to enhance the quality of life throughout the community.


Miller's Office Supply

"Miller's is very fortunate to have recently entered into an agreement with Washington Gas that will be a significant catalyst to our growth in the coming years. Their procurement team was open to learning about and recognizing the value that a small, woman-owned local business can provide. As a result Washington Gas is now experiencing better service and pricing while also supporting a local small business"
-- Patricia Miller - President, Miller's Office Supply
