Our procurement process

The business will define its requirements for a product or service and the Procurement team:

  • performs market research and identifies available suppliers
  • assesses new suppliers (risk-assessment and capacity v. quality analysis)
  • prepares the RFx and compares the suppliers’ proposals (including Ariba registration for RFx purposes)
  • negotiates commercial terms & conditions and contractual clauses with selected suppliers
  • triggers 'New Supplier Setup' in our Ariba database
  • signs contracts with suppliers

We measure supplier performance over specified time periods and discussion over regular meetings.
