The Prime Supplier Program
Current suppliers with PG&E contracts or purchase agreements, who hire subcontractors to help execute their obligations, are referred to as prime suppliers.
The Prime Supplier Program is a key PG&E initiative for supply chain responsibility. Participation strengthens your business, builds stronger supply chains and enhances economic vitality in our communities. This program focuses on sharing our collective successes and helping our suppliers develop their own initiatives in:
- Supplier diversity
- Environmental sustainability
- Safe and ethical business practices
Submit your monthly diversity results
We ask our prime suppliers to report their monthly diverse subcontracting results to help us measure our collective performance and report to the CPUC. Please report your monthly results accurately and on-time via the subcontracting reporting website. More information can be found in the supplier diversity prime supplier FAQ.
