As Git is a volunteer-driven free-software project, there are no vendors
behind it.

Looks like you basically have two options to fulfill the requirements
of your organization:

 * Contact the Software Freedom Conservancy [1] which is an official
   body serving as an aegis for Git and a bunch of other F/OSS projects.
   They are not vendor but at least they are a legal entity and are
   able to do law-speak.

 * Sign a contract with any company offerring support for Git or
   its Git-based solutions.  Atlassian might be an option (I don't know
   for sure -- just speculating, and I'm not affiliated with them
   in any regard).
