Attention Primary Contacts – Be on the Lookout for Due Diligence Questionnaire

If you received an email request to complete a Due Diligence Questionnaire (DDQ) this is a legitimate email and request from VMware. As part of our ongoing effort to help ensure integrity in the channel, our partners are required to complete or update DDQ as a condition of our continuing business relationship.

  • DDQ Requirement Notification and subsequent reminders are sent from GlobalPartnerComp@vmware.com and contains the VMware logo.
  • Email request sent to your designated Compliance Contact as provided in your Partner Connect profile.
  • DDQ is consistent with legal requirements and best practices in our industry.
  • Check out our Partner Integrity FAQ on the Partner Compliance page for additional information.

Unable to complete the DDQ by the deadline stated in the email? Reach out to our Partner Compliance team.
