San Jose Water seeks business relationships that help us to provide our customers with excellent customer service and a reliable supply of high quality water at a fair and reasonable price.
We create and maintain these relationships as we are working to broaden our network of partners through a newly implemented Utility Supplier Diversity Program (USDP). SJW's USDP is designed to encourage, recruit, and utilize women and minority owned business enterprises (WMBE), as well as disabled-veteran owned business enterprises (DVBE) in California in our procurement chain. The USDP is based upon guidelines established by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for regulated energy and telecommunication utilities.
SJW believes that supplier diversity is good business and benefits our community. Many best-in-class companies show this commitment by developing a diverse supplier base within the communities in which they operate. Our expectation is that the expansion of the available vendor base will ultimately lead to lower procurement costs.
