SDI Receives Multiple Minority Business Enterprise Certifications

Certifications Meet Diversity Requirements for City of Chicago, State of Illinois and Broward Health.

CHICAGO, IL, July 21, 2016 —  Mission-critical systems integrator SDI (SDI Presence LLC) announces that it has been certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) with the City of Chicago, State of Illinois Central Management Services (BEP), and Broward Health. The firm was also recently certified as an MBE with the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council (CMSDC), which also provides SDI with National Minority Supplier Diversity Certification (NMSDC), one of the country’s leading diversity certification organizations that represents some of America’s largest public and privately-owned global companies.

SDI’s MBE certifications cover a full spectrum of professional services – from consulting/design, to deployment/integration, through long-term managed services – in the following areas:

  • Information technology enterprise applications, infrastructure, devices and data management
  • Electronic security systems
  • Commercial real estate square footage accounting services

The firm is well-versed in minority certification programs: SDI has a stellar record of meeting or exceeding its MBE utilization contractual obligations, understanding the minority utilization and supplier diversity programs’ importance in the procurement process and their overall multiplier effect on our community’s economy. The firm’s management and project teams receive continuous education on the documentation, reporting and process requirements of the programs to ensure proper compliance.

And SDI works collaboratively with both its MBE partners and clients, to ensure that customer expectations are met while assisting our MBE partners in building their capacity. “As an MBE, SDI will continue to work with our MBE partners in meaningful ways to foster their success,” states SDI CEO David Gupta. “We will look to continue to build strong mentoring relationships that benefit our clients as well as our local minority partners.”
