Through our Supplier Diversity Program, Idaho Power is committed to stimulating the establishment and growth of small business concerns, including the following:
- Veteran-owned small business concerns
- Service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns
- Historically under-utilized business zone (HUBZone) small business concerns
- Small disadvantaged business concerns
- Women-owned small business concerns
The growth and prosperity of these small business concerns should help us realize a more vital society and an economic environment in which all may participate.
In accordance with U.S. government procurement contract requirements, we are committed to providing opportunities for small business concerns to participate in procurement opportunities to the maximum extent, and to facilitating business opportunities by making small business concerns’ company information available to our internal purchasers.
About Our Program
Thank you for your interest in working with Idaho Power. We are interested in working with, and providing opportunities to, small business concerns, as listed above, that are capable of providing goods and services that satisfy our requirements at competitive prices. By providing these diverse suppliers the opportunity to compete equally and participate in the sourcing process, Idaho Power is maximizing timely, efficient and effective supply chain services to meet the needs of our clients and communities.
In general, only U.S.-based, for-profit companies may qualify as small business concerns for U.S. government procurement. Eligibility as a small business concern, is based on the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 13, Parts 121, 124, 125, and 126, issued by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
You may also consult the SBA Office in your area to be listed as a small business concern.
Self-certifying your company as a small business concern is permissible except for HUBZone small business concerns, which require certification by the SBA.
