Humana Military is dedicated to utilizing small businesses to help us achieve success. We work diligently to bring small, disadvantaged, women-owned, Veteran-owned and service-disabled Veteran-owned businesses and those small businesses located in HUBZones, into our circle of vendors, subcontractors and teammates.
Our small business program works collaboratively with our parent company Humana Inc.'s supplier diversity program to reach out to small businesses to increase supplier diversity and to educate suppliers on Humana Military procurement processes. Humana Military seeks the best talent among diverse suppliers, contractors and consultants to enhance our business. We have discovered that small businesses are often just as qualified as, and often more cost effective, than larger suppliers.
In addition to developing our supplier base, Humana Military takes pride in working with small businesses as teaming partners to expose them to opportunities that may be too large or too complex for them to undertake on their own. This strategy enables small businesses, working either as the prime contractor or subcontractor, to gain first hand experience on large and complex projects they wouldn't ordinarily be exposed to, thereby expanding their competencies.
