Frequently Asked Questions

How can I become a Caesars Entertainment supplier?
Caesars will give consideration to new suppliers based upon business needs, existing contractual relationships, and supplier offerings. Review our supplier selection criteria.

What does “certification” mean?
Certification means your company’s day-to-day operations and ownership structure have been reviewed by a third-party certifying agency and is certified by them as a diversity business. Suppliers are responsible for acquiring and maintaining valid certification.

Which third-party certifying agencies does Caesars recognize?
Caesars recognizes a number of agencies, including (but not limited to):

  • The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) and its Regional affiliate councils.
  • The Small Business Administration (SBA) – 8 (a) program, HUBZone program, Small Business Enterprise (SBE), Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB).
  • Federal Government Agencies (ex. National Department of Transportation, Department of Veteran’s Affairs)
  • State Government Agencies (ex. Dept. of Transportation)
  • Local (county, city) Government Agencies (ex. City ofLas Vegas/Clark County, Chamber of Commerce)
  • Women Business Owners Corporation (WBOC)
  • Women and Minority Business Enterprise Clearinghouse (WMBE)
  • Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)

Can I work directly with Caesars local properties?
Yes. However, Caesars operates in several jurisdictions with differing procurement and certification requirements. Since each property must comply with its own jurisdiction’s regulatory requirements, there will be variations within each local purchasing program. National contracts are not awarded at the local level.

Does Caesars do business with only large companies?
Caesars works with companies of all sizes, on a local, regional and national basis.

How often are contracts renewed?
Contract duration varies depending on the individual product or service. When a contract comes up for renewal, Caesars may invite qualified suppliers (who may or may not be registered in our supplier database) to participate in a bid opportunity. However, Caesars reserves the right to continue pre-existing relationships without conducting new bids.

What is your turn-around time on invoices?
Payment is usually made within 30 days after an invoice has been received, or goods and services have been accepted.
