Commitment to Supplier Outreach

Cal Water is committed to proactively building connections with diverse suppliers. Through supplier outreach, we are able to cultivate relationships with companies in our communities that are capable of providing commodities and services at competitive prices and add value to the service we provide to our customers. We are continually striving to exceed our goals to establish lasting relationships that create value for all parties.

“Our Strategic Supplier Outreach program helps us provide the best, lowest cost services to our customers by broadening and strengthening our pool of qualified bidders. It implements the California Public Utilities Commission’s policies intended to increase opportunities for women, minority, disabled veteran, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and persons with disabilities business enterprises. It also gives us more opportunities to work with vendors who live in and reflect the communities we serve.”
— Peter C. Nelson, Chairman of the Board
