Registering as a Small or Diverse Supplier with DuPont

A diverse business is a for-profit enterprise, regardless of size, physically located in the United States, which is owned, operated and controlled by a minority, woman, veteran, or disabled individual. Ownership means the business is at least 51% owned by such individuals and the management and daily operations are controlled by those groups.

A small business is a for profit enterprise, with a place of business located in the United States, which together with its affiliates must meet the numerical size standards as defined in the Small Business Size Regulations,13 CFR 121.
