How to get your small business to work with someone like CBS et al?


adam locklin New York, NY

I'm curious from the CBS point of view, how have you seen small businesses (military veteran or non-veteran) become a supplier/vendor or work with CBS?
What does the "happy path" look like?
Any personal accounts on success or failures from small businesses pitching or working with CBS?

Thank you for the quick reply Anthony. I've completed those forms and have an Ariba Sourcing account.
I was looking for more information about initiatives and what you all have personally used that isn't CBS supplied. For example, at PwC I worked with technology companies through Joint Business Relationship contracts to help them take their small business product to market. Or within innovation or research and development departments to create a new commercial service or improvement for said large corporate company to reduce costs, improve efficiency and so forth.

Hi Adam,

I would suggest going to our CBS Corporation Supplier Page. It’s a platform where both prospective and current suppliers of CBS Corporation can register. Please note that registering does not guarantee or imply that you will receive an invitation to a competitive bidding event, new business or a contract from CBS Corporation or any of its affiliates. If there is an interest in the goods or services provided by your company, a representative from CBS Strategic Sourcing will contact you for further consideration and information. CBS is also committed to the advancement of an environment that promotes a diverse supplier base. You can learn more and ask questions by emailing
