No. Please round to the nearest dollar.
We are unable to change the reporting window at this time. It is important you submit your results in a timely manner to ensure the dollars are captured as the reported dollars cannot be adjusted after the reporting period closes.
After submitting, you will receive an email confirmation showing what you reported within the Supplier Diversity Management System. You will also receive an email indicating when a reporting period is open. Please make sure to review the reported dollars for accuracy.
Payments should be reported into the Supplier Diversity Management System only after you have paid your subcontractors and in the year the PG&E work was done. If we pay you in the last quarter of the calendar year, please make every effort to pay your subcontractors during that same calendar year so you can report those dollars in the same year.
Please report based on the “check cleared” date.
Yes. Diverse Business Enterprises should report subcontracting with Diverse Business Enterprise-certified suppliers in the Supplier Diversity Management System. We place the same requirements and guidelines on all suppliers, regardless of their diversity status.
The amount reported by Diverse Business Enterprises is used to track subcontracting performance. It is not double counted in our Supplier Diversity results reports.
No. We encourage you to report your subcontracting, regardless of how much PG&E spends with you.
No. If you have nothing to report, you do not need to enter anything into the Supplier Diversity Management System.
We strive to continuously improve supplier diversity. Establish a goal with your sourcing contact that shows your support of our effort. A Supplier Diversity Consultant is also available to help you identify opportunities that will help you reach the goal. Once this is set, minimally an exhibit 1A should be filled out, which will serve as the minimum acceptable subcontracting plan. You should then begin monthly reporting against that goal. Even if you do not yet have a formal goal, please do report your Diverse Business Enterprise subcontracting for the PG&E work that you do.
Yes. Please report your Diverse Business Enterprise subcontracting if you receive, or expect to receive, at least $5,000 in payments from PG&E within the current year. If we spend less than $5,000 with you for the current calendar year, we still encourage you to report those dollars into the Supplier Diversity Management System.
If you are currently reporting into the Supplier Diversity Management System on a contract-by-contract basis, continue to do so. If you are just beginning to report in the Supplier Diversity Management System, you should report based on your company-wide totals unless your PG&E sourcing contact requests individual contract-by-contract reporting. Your sourcing representative may ask for a more detailed plan outside of your Supplier Diversity Management System reporting that addresses each contract/project individually.
Although we expect you to use the suppliers originally listed in Exhibit 1A, we understand that your business strategy or the available competitive subcontractors may change. Therefore it is not required that you use those diverse suppliers originally identified on Exhibit 1A. However, we do hope that you strive to meet your goal set on the original Exhibit 1A by utilizing certified Diverse Business Enterprise subcontractors.
We encourage you to continually improve your supplier diversity goals. Any updates to your subcontracting plan and aspirational goals should be discussed with your PG&E sourcing contact.
We strongly encourage all prime suppliers to share in our commitment to supplier diversity, to support the communities we serve and to strive for continuous improvement. We expect you to set aspirational supplier diversity goals and develop a robust supplier diversity program of your own. We expect you to report your diverse subcontracting spending on a monthly basis. Your supplier diversity performance is taken into account when we evaluate Request for Information/Proposal responses as well as in your PG&E supplier performance scorecards.
