DMSCA is structured via pull sytem model to create supply chain demand and business development for performance certified suppliers in the DMSCA Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP). Organizational components include:
STRATEGIC SOURCING EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP COMMITTEE (SSELC)
The SSELC consists of Corporate Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and other Supply Chain Executives that support supplier development and innovation discovery and provide insights and perspectives on industry group segmented technologies, performance requirements, and reinforcement of need for proactive engagement in development initiatives such as the DMSCA Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP).

SOURCING AND BUYING ORGANIZATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE (SBO-AC)
The SBO-AC consists of corporate members’ and prospective corporate members’ sourcing and buying organization’s directors and managers (category leaders, buyers, supplier relationship managers, etc.) that impact supplier procurement. The SBO-AC specifically provides guidelines for internal CMP Supplier Standard Metrics review and fosters understanding of industry group segmented supply chain performance requirements and methodologies for fostering collaboration with corporate supplier diversity organizations.
SUPPLIER DIVERSITY ORGANIZATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE (SDO-AC)
The SDO-AC consists of corporate members’ and prospective corporate members’ supplier diversity organizations’ directors and managers with responsibilities for supplier outreach, inclusion, and sustainability. The SDO-AC specifically provides input on methodologies for supplier outreach to external industry groups and development guidelines for the formation of DMSCA Industry Group Clusters. The SDO-AC also supports the need for supplier engagement in development initiatives such as the DMSCA Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP).
INDUSTRY GROUP CLUSTERS (IGC)
Industry Group Clusters are built through the collaborative efforts of the SSELC, SBO-AC, and the SDO-AC and include all member and guest corporations and all suppliers.
