Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the type of company you own. EDC uses these documents to establish the eligibility of the business being certified. However, in all cases, the owner or authorized business representative submitting the application will be required to provide proof of their identity in the form of a valid driver’s license, passport, or government-issued form of picture identification.

Sole Proprietorship

  • A copy of the owner’s tax return with Schedule C included, OR
  • A copy of the DBA proving that the individual established the alternative (if a DBA is being used)

Limited Liability Company

  • Articles of organization.

S Corporation

  • The articles of incorporation with the stock information included.

C Corporation

Any bonafide US Citizen or Resident Owned Business that is 51% owned, managed and controlled by one or more of the included diversity categories (Minority, Woman, Veteran, Disability, LGBT) is eligible to get certified. 

Non-US EDC Certification categories will be added in the near future, but EDC is also currently available in Nigeria, Kenya, Canada, and the UK. Qualifications vary depending on country, and this will be updated to reflect those qualifications in the near future.

The EDC process recognizes all types of diverse businesses including minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, LGBT-owned and disability-owned businesses.

No. Renewal is not automatic but will take a few minutes to renew, just as the initial certification does. The process needs an update of all documents’ required submittal, renewal of attestations and the digital identity verification process.

You will be notified by email when your certification is due for renewal, and you will not be able to begin the renewal process until you have received that email.

If your business does not pass the criteria and therefore is not issued a certification, SupplierGATEWAY will refund your business 50% of the application fee. This does not apply to those who are premium subscribers or paid by corporate sponsors.
