At Freddie Mac, our goal is to embed diversity and inclusion into all our business practices — to be
a high-performing business leader equipped to meet the challenges of the future.
Through our Supplier Diversity program, we've supported diversity in contracting opportunities for more than 22 years — awarding millions of dollars in contracts to diverse suppliers. In 2013, we awarded 31 percent of corporate procurement and REO HomeSteps dollars to diverse suppliers, which places us in excellent standing among our peers. We continue to explore new avenues to strengthen our efforts.
The secondary mortgage market is an ever changing and demanding environment that calls for suppliers who maintain high-quality standards, are cost competitive and place a premium on customer service. We focus on identifying qualified vendors who meet these standards. Supplier Diversity works closely with Procurement and the company's business areas so that these suppliers can provide the highest quality products and services at the most competitive prices.
"A strong supplier diversity program helps Freddie Mac’s business and allows us to more effectively meet the needs of all the communities we serve."
– Donald H. Layton, Chief Executive Officer
