Supplier Diversity at Microsoft

Registering Your Interest in Becoming a Microsoft Supplier

If you are interested in becoming a Microsoft supplier, visit our registration Web site, where you can provide us with important information about your company. Registering does not guarantee that your company will become a supplier for Microsoft. However, by registering, you alert Microsoft buyers of your interest and provide them with information to help them determine whether your company is appropriate for consideration.

After you have registered, you can re-access the registration Web site at any time to update your profile.

This information will be sent to Hiperos to create an account at the Microsoft Global Procurement Group Supplier Portal site.  You will be able to access and update your information at that site after your account is created, and the information will be used in accordance with the Hiperos Privacy Statement.

To create an account on the registration site, please provide the following information. All fields are required:

Company Name

Processing of your request to register can take 36-48 hours. You will be notified by email.

Note: Microsoft provides extra visibility to suppliers in our supplier list that qualify as diverse (for example, woman-owned, minority-owned, and veteran-owned). In order to qualify for this special recognition, suppliers must be certified by one of the agencies listed in our list of Official Accreditation Organizations or by a federal, state, county, or local government agency.

Here is how Microsoft identifies and selects new suppliers:

  1. When starting a procurement sourcing initiative, a Microsoft Supplier Account Manager or buyer first reviews our list of current approved suppliers.
  2. If a current supplier is unable to fulfill the requirement, the buyer will search for new suppliers by using our supplier registration database, databases of certified diverse firms, and other referrals. The certified diversity databases come from organizations such as the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), National Minority-Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), Center for Veteran Enterprises (CVE), and Department of Defense's Central Contractor Registration (CCR).
  3. If your company is deemed appropriate for consideration, the Microsoft Supplier Account Manager or buyer will contact you to be included in the procurement sourcing initiative.
