As a regular and ongoing part of our business practice and sourcing strategy, Roche Diagnostics is committed to the principle and practice of partnering with United States Small businesses. This includes businesses classified as Small and those that are owned and operated by disadvantage, service-disabled veterans, veterans, minorities, women or those located in a historically underutilized business zone (HUBZone). Partnerships with such organizations are an integral part of our supply base. Supplier Diversity adds to our competitive strengths and creates our unique culture as a business enterprise.
Roche Diagnostics uses the United States Federal Government definitions for Small, Small Disadvantaged, Women-owned, HUBZone, Service-disabled Veteran, and Veteran owned small businesses as established by the North American Industry Classification System - NAICS codes). Once you know your NAICS code, the Table of Size Standards is located on the Small Business Administration's (SBA) website. If you cannot determine your NAICS code, please contact your local SBA office.

If you want to be considered for bid opportunities, please send an email with your company's contact information.
We use the System for Award Management (SAM) U.S. Government and the Small Business Administration's Dynamic Small Business Search databases as search tools. We may not have a current requirement for your capabilities and we may not know when such a requirement will occur. However, once a need has been identified, a Roche Diagnostics employee will contact you with bid information.
Roche Diagnostics strives to improve our procurement activities with all Small businesses. Our commitment is demonstrated by attending various match-making events and other Small business networking and training forums to educate and expand our purchases with Small businesses.
In 2015, over 40% of our U.S. based spend was with Small businesses and over 10% was spent with the various categories within Small businesses. Our 2016 and beyond Goals are to increase our spend and opportunities with all Small businesses.
