We strive to achieve the optimal combination of price, quality and service for purchased products and services through our Supply Chain Management group. Together, we help provide minority, women, disadvantaged, and small business enterprises (MWDSBEs) with a broad range of opportunities to participate as suppliers. We recognize that having a diverse supplier base enhances our supply chain which contributes to increased efficiency and innovation to provide an enhanced experience for our valued customers.
It is a practice of Wells Fargo that certified MWDSBEs have a broad range of opportunities to participate in supplier contracts. Follow the three-step process to be added to our database.
Determine if your company provides products and services that we need. We source the following products and services:
- Architecture, construction and property management, and real estate services
- Furnishings, office equipment and supplies, moving, and storage
- Human resource staffing, legal, marketing, and technology services
- Promotional items and printed products
- Service contracts, maintenance, and repair
Ensure that your company is certified as a MWDSBE. To qualify as a MWDSBE, your company must be certified by an official certification agency. For details, please contact any of these agencies directly.
Agency contact information
The certification process typically involves completing an application and providing written documentation, and may include allowing the certifying agency to conduct a site visit. If your company qualifies, the certifying agency will issue you a printed certificate to verify your status.

Diverse business classifications
We recognize the following supplier diversity groups as part of our supplier diversity process. The diverse businesses described below must be at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by individuals with U.S. citizenship with these diverse business classifications.

Business that meets "small" ownership criteria and Small Business Size Standard for its industry, as defined by the SBA.
What is a Small Business Size Standard?
A size standard, which is usually stated in number of employees or average annual receipts, represents the largest size that a business (including its subsidiaries and affiliates) may be to remain classified as a small business for SBA and federal contracting programs. The definition of small varies by industry.
SBA certifications, including 8(a), Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB) and Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBZone), have other criteria that must be met. Please refer to www.sba.gov for a full description of the certification programs and the eligibility requirements.
We do not accept self certifications. Please refer to your federal, local and state government agencies, or other agencies identified above, for the certification process.
