Pathways to Excellence

Program Overview

Pathways to Excellence is a business self-assessment that helps diverse suppliers understand the standards and business requirements used by major corporations and governmental entities in the supplier selection process. P2E provides the technical assistance training to close identified gaps within the seven pillars (HSSE, Cyber Security, Quality, Corporate Policies, Technical, Financials, and ESG) reflecting business standards and corporate requirements. This increases a MBEs ability to compete for higher value added contracts.

Grow and Develop Your Company

HMSDC understands it can take many years to build a successful business, which is why a constant pipeline of developing MBEs is needed as others retire or sell their companies. For these reasons, HMSDC has established the Pathways to Excellence Program to ensure a steady stream of developing MBEs are being prepared to meet corporate demands.

These MBEs will receive a designation that they meet corporate standards and business requirements that will earn them opportunities to show case their “readiness” to key business decision makers. The HMSDC enthusiastically offers the HMSDC’s Pathways to Excellence Program to MBEs to grow and develop their companies.
