The Fed’s hybrid public/private structure and its critical role in shepherding America’s economy may sometimes create challenges for suppliers interested in doing business with the organization. This session will increase the minority supplier’s understanding of the Federal Reserve – who we are, what we do, and the various opportunities to do business throughout the System. This workshop will help suppliers determine where the opportunities are that best fit their respective capabilities. Co-Sponsor Wells Fargo Additional sponsorships are available for this event.
