We expect our suppliers to provide the same commitment to excellence that we give to each customer. The purchasing scope at Windstream covers products and services provided by suppliers, prioritized by urgency/need and opportunity. To inform you about potential opportunities with Windstream, we'll need some information about your company and the products/services you provide.
Your information will be forwarded for analysis to a sourcing team, and someone from our staff will contact you if an appropriate opportunity for future business should arise. There will be no further need on your part to contact Windstream unless directed to do so by a member of our sourcing staff. Please review the Windstream Procurement Terms and Conditions.
