We know how difficult it is to get in front an enterprise private sector organization. Our path for our small business partners is to help them enter private sector procurement programs or supplier diversity programs through single purchases on corporate credit cards or pCards. This can lead the small business to visibility and experience they can leverage to pursue additional bid and contract opportunities.
The NDVSB eMarketplace provides NDVSB members with an inclusive procurement strategy that provides visibility to many small business suppliers that they may not otherwise purchase from or know about.
The NDVSB eMarketplace is NOT your typical eMarketplace where one size fits all.
The technology behind the eMarketplace enables small businesses to grow and supports NDVSB members
reach their supplier diversity goals with NDVSB small business partners who are veteran-owned, minority-owned, women-owned, or military spouse-owned.
Corporations that have pCard or credit card off-contract spend going to other eMarketplaces can register and start shopping from NDVSB suppliers today. The NDVSB eMarketplace provides multiple product categories, data analytics, level III line-item reporting and more.
