Our supply chain is managed by a centralised supply chain team and is supported by local project resources. Both groups are responsible for: working with our operations to identify needs and sources of supply; initiate requests for goods and services; negotiate pricing and contracts; and manage supplier relationships.
We employ uniform procedures for establishing, negotiating, awarding and administering contracts with suppliers. Where national or regional contracts are appropriate, our sourcing team works with business units and projects to identify prospective suppliers and call for proposals. Our systems are designed to ensure the intellectual property of suppliers is protected.
We have policies in place which govern how each business unit and project may commit funds, including approval limits and robust processes. This creates rigorous accountability across our operations.
