Supplier Diversity

CEI is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We encourage subcontractors and suppliers to promote diversity by working with small, disabled, veteran, disadvantaged and women-owned businesses and regularly meet with diverse suppliers during the pre-construction phase of projects to ensure they bring maximum value. We also identify financially-stable, qualified diverse business enterprises to supply products and services that meet our specifications, service requirements and competitive pricing needs. To inquire about becoming a diverse supplier, contact supplier_diversity@cei.com.
