Supplier Diversity is not only an essential component to our service plan, but also best practice at American Water.

Welcome to American Water’s Supplier Portal

Thank you for your interest in doing business with American Water Works Service Company, Inc., its subsidiary and affiliated companies! American Water’s National Supplier Diversity Initiative provides companies owned and operated by minorities, women, veterans, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, small businesses and people with disabilities equal footing to effectively work with us while at the same time, growing their own business.

The following is a non-prioritized list of expectation American Water requires of all vendors with whom we do business: 

  • Safety
  • Cost/Price
  • Quality
  • Availability/Delivery/Turnaround Time
  • Vendor Capabilities 
  • Vendor Resources
  • Vendor Record Tracking
  • Vendor Utility Industry Experience
  • Response Time to Inquiries 

Supplier Registration 

You will need the following information to complete your registration.

  • Company name, DBA name, Federal Tax ID, Dun and Bradstreet number
