ACT Vendor Resources
Guidelines for Suppliers
ACT’s mission is “Helping people achieve education and workplace success,” and “people” enthusiastically includes the thousands of supply chain companies and individuals from all backgrounds whose efforts are critical to helping our millions of customers succeed.
-Mike Pearsall, Senior Vice President, Supply Chain Operations
Our supply chain must reflect the full strength and diversity of our customers. Every person deserves the opportunity, and the invitation, to make the most of their potential.
-Janet Godwin, Chief Operating Officer
A supply chain is a series of relationships. In addition to supporting key processes spanning production through distribution, ACT’s supply chain depends on strong, collaborative, and scalable human relationships—because in the end ACT serves people, not processes.
Our customers—students, teachers, parents, principals, superintendents, employers, employees, policymakers, and others—are stunningly diverse. Together, they represent the entire spectrum of humanity.
ACT is better able to respond to each of our customers’ unique needs by having a robust, cost-effective, collaborative and quality driven supply chain that reflects this exciting diversity.
From our founding in 1959, ACT has always focused on providing opportunity. That commitment is embedded into our DNA. Our nonprofit organization, which now operates in all 50 states and more than 130 countries worldwide, is based on the belief that ALL people deserve the chance to achieve, and that it’s our job to open doors – not close them.
The modern marketplace is more vibrant than ever before. ACT is committed to the principles of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity for each of our team members and applicants, regardless of race, ethnicity, color, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability status, veteran status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.
Similarly, our supplier program provides companies owned and operated by minorities, women, veterans, members of the LGBT community, and people with disabilities an equal opportunity to work with us and grow their own businesses.
If you share ACT’s steadfast commitment to quality and inclusion, we invite you to submit your proposal for doing business with ACT. As an organization, ACT is most effective when we are able to benefit from the unique strengths of a diverse supply chain.
We sincerely hope you can become part of our supplier team and, in doing so, join us in making life-changing contributions to the personal and professional success of the millions of people ACT serves through our products and programs each year.
