The mission of Scientific Games’ supplier diversity program is to be a proactive business partner with certified diverse suppliers who can provide quality materials and services that meet and exceed the needs of our operations and lottery customers.
Scientific Games believes that success can be obtained by diverse groups working together to achieve common goals. Our supplier diversity program encourages diverse (minority, women, disabled, veteran-owned as well as other small and HUB Zone) businesses to provide materials and services that offer great value and competitive pricing.
SG’s supplier diversity program objectives focus on:
As the leading global supplier of gaming products and services to state lotteries, Scientific Games believes that diversity in our supplier base is good business. Scientific Games is proud to be a national corporate member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC).
Scientific Games continuously searches for the best solutions to our customers' requests and have found many of these solutions are leveraged with our diverse suppliers. Through our supplier diversity program, Scientific Games provides economic and business development opportunities for our suppliers and the communities they support.
