What is a Minority Certified PEO? | PEO Blog

Wednesday October 12, 2011

I’ve been following a LinkedIn discussion regarding Professional Employer Organization – PEO services provided by a Minority Certified PEO.

It’s been interesting following the discussion; surprisingly a number of people wondered what constituted a Minority Certified Company in general so I thought it would be helpful to explain it.

Generally when a prospect who is searching for Human Resource Outsourcing, Professional Employer Organization Services, Payroll, Temporary, Temp to Hire, or Contract Labor Services is asking about a Minority Certified they are referring to a provider that is part of the NMSDC – National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. or one of their locations listed on their website at www.nmsdc.org.  The locations are basically state or regional councils that follow the guidelines of the NMSDC.

The Mission of the NMSDC is to provide a direct link between corporate America and minority-owned businesses is the primary objective of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, one of the country’s leading business membership organizations. It was chartered in 1972 to provide increased procurement and business opportunities for minority businesses of all sizes.


The NMSDC Network includes a National Office in New York and 37 regional councils across the country. There are 3,500 corporate members throughout the network, including most of America’s largest publicly-owned, privately-owned and foreign-owned companies, as well as universities, hospitals and other buying institutions. The regional councils certify and match more than 16,000 minority owned businesses (Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American) with member corporations which want to purchase goods and services.
