Submitted by Xerox Corporation

Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has won two supplier awards from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA): the Frances Perkins Vanguard Award for Excellence and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Award for Excellence.
The Frances Perkins Vanguard Award for Excellence recognizes both individuals and buying activities in government and industry sectors for using woman-owned, small businesses as prime contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Award for Excellence honors large business contractors who use small businesses and subcontractors.

Xerox was judged as the most outstanding of all large contractors out of more than 2,500 entries for both awards. Xerox works with more than 10,000 small business suppliers; 19 percent of these are minority and female suppliers. These suppliers delivered more than 12 percent in cost savings to Xerox, and they are involved in every aspect of Xerox' procurement and marketing businesses.

"Winning these awards acknowledges our dedication to supplier diversity and to our economic enterprise as a whole," said Anne Mulcahy, Xerox president and chief operating officer. "Xerox is sincerely committed to supplier diversity and we are honored to be distinguished as a model in this area."

The awards will be presented at the 33rd annual Joint Industry/SBA Procurement Conference in Washington, D.C., on June 13 and 14.
