At the NCUA, the commitment and responsibility for advancing diversity in its procurement activities rests with all agency employees who have responsibility for inviting, selecting, evaluating, and approving vendors. The NCUA’s procurement practices incorporate procedures that enhance opportunities for diverse vendors to participate in the agency’s business contracting activities.
Doing Business with the NCUA
The NCUA uses a competitive process to acquire goods and services. This entails conducting inclusive market research to generate a list of vendors who are invited to submit quotes or proposals in response to opportunities. Vendors interested in doing business with the NCUA must register with the agency by completing the vendor registration form (opens new window).
Although not required, the NCUA highly recommends that vendors also register with the System for Awards Management (www.sam.gov (opens new window)), which is the federal government’s central vendor registration database.
To learn more about how to do business with the NCUA, please review our “How to do Business with the National Credit Union Administration” (opens new window) instructional pamphlet.
