Commitment to Excellence
Once registered, suppliers may expect to receive electronic notification of requests for quotations via our IT system. These requests will detail our specific technical requirements, the terms and conditions we wish to contract under, our nominated point of contact, and the timescales for replying. We assess all replies on a value for money basis and notify the successful bidder before finalizing the arrangements and placing a purchase order.
From time to time we will approach specific suppliers and market segments with our strategic supply requirements. In these instances our approach is to seek input from potential and existing supply partners before finalizing our requirements.
We do this because we recognize that our suppliers very often have great ideas about how they can help us improve the way we deliver to our customers. We are keen to capture these ideas and build them into our thinking.
