The TSMSDC COE, launched by the TriState Minority Supplier Development Council in conjunction with Ingersoll Rand, and NMSDC, is an educational platform to address a unique and value-added mentor-protégé program. It is designed to develop business relationships among 21 minority businesses and 10 corporations.
The program offers knowledge sharing, benchmarking, procurement, and modeling the NMSDC Best Practices. Additionally, COE provides data, monitoring/tracking, and establishes the tools to position minority businesses to compete nationally and globally. The desired mutual outcome is that corporate mentors will enhance their supplier diversity processes, and their MBE protégés will build capacity for growth, sustainability, and success.
