Suppliers & Ethics
Choosing our suppliers is serious business. We invest in creating durable relationships and regularly 'inspect what we expect' when it comes to compliance, quality and alignment to goals. Only those who live up to the high standards we set become our Tier 1 suppliers and we are proud to have them as part of the Rackspace family.
Rackspace is committed to diversity— both in its employees (Rackers) and its suppliers. Specific to suppliers, in addition to cost and quality, we provide consideration for diverse suppliers. In 2013, our efforts are focused on increasing diverse suppliers and business awards within our professional services portfolio (contractors, consultants).
Our definition of diversity includes:
- Women Owned
- Military/Veteran Owned (includes DBVE)
- Minority Owned (MWBE Definition)
- LGBT Owned
- Small Business (includes SDB, DBE, HUB)
