Diversity Reporting - Subs & Material Suppliers

    I have recently been required to send diversity reporting information on a large project.  This is separate from EEO reporting because they want to know what we spent with subcontractors and material suppliers who are a minority owned company.  None of these minority / diversity programs seem to ask the same information, or is similar to what the federal government programs require.  Does anyone else have to report their minority spending with a customer or a certain project?  I also am wondering is there one standard reporting structure, or does every company to their own?

    This is very common in the market that we're in.  Tedious and definitely not consistent reporting methodology from job to job.  All depends on the client we are working for.  NOTE: None of them are Federal or State clients- all private....
