If you can’t locate a supplier, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-973-1225. This may happen when the supplier is not listed as a certified Diverse Supplier by the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC). If the supplier is CPUC-certified, the supplier is typically added to the Supplier Diversity Management System.
The Supplier Diversity Management System is designed to accept only whole dollar amounts. Please round up to the nearest dollar.
No, the reporting window requirement cannot be extended. Submit your results within the 10-day window to ensure dollar amounts are saved. Please verify that the reported amounts are correct. Reported amounts cannot be changed after the reporting period ends.
Yes, you receive an email confirmation showing what you reported after submitting your amounts. You also receive an email stating that a reporting period is open.
Report your payments after you pay your subcontractors and in the same year that the PG&E work is completed. For example, when you are paid by PG&E during the last quarter (October-December) of a calendar year, pay your subcontractors during that same calendar year. Then, you can report the dollar amounts in the same calendar year.
Report dollar amounts based on the check cleared date.
Yes, Diverse Business Enterprises must report subcontracting with Diverse Business Enterprise-certified suppliers in the Supplier Diversity Management System. The same requirements and guidelines are expected from all suppliers, regardless of their diversity status.
No, the amount reported by Diverse Business Enterprises is tracked as subcontracting performance and is not double-counted in Supplier Diversity Management System reports.
No, there is no minimum dollar amount. We encourage you to report your subcontracting, regardless of how much PG&E spends with your business.
No, if your business has zero dollars to report, you need not enter the amount in the Supplier Diversity Management System.
Follow these steps to create a diverse subcontracting goal for your business:
Yes, you must report your Diverse Business Enterprise subcontracting work for PG&E regardless of whether you have set a formal goal. You must also report when you receive, or expect to receive, at least $5,000 in payments from PG&E during the current calendar year. When PG&E spends less than $5,000 with your business during the current calendar year, we recommend that you report those dollars into the Supplier Diversity Management System.
When your business is currently reporting into the Supplier Diversity Management System on a contract-by-contract basis, please continue this process.
When your business is new to reporting into the Supplier Diversity Management System, report into the system based on your company-wide totals unless your PG&E sourcing contact requests individual contract-by-contract reporting. Your sourcing contact may also request a detailed plan that addresses each contract or project individually in addition to your Supplier Diversity Management System reporting.
We expect you to use the suppliers originally listed in Exhibit 1A. However, because your business strategy or the available competitive subcontractors may change, you are not required to use these suppliers. Please keep in mind that we expect your business to strive to meet your goal set on the original Exhibit 1A by using certified Diverse Business Enterprise subcontractors.
Yes, you are encouraged to continually improve your supplier diversity goals. Changes to your subcontracting plan and goals should be discussed with your PG&E sourcing contact.

Your Supplier Diversity performance is considered when we evaluate Request for Information/Proposal responses and is noted in your PG&E Supplier Performance scorecards.
