Suppliers and subcontractors are key to Saipem Canada Inc.'s success. We are committed to maintaining and improving a mutual long term understanding and trust with companies that work for and with us. While providing equal business opportunities, suppliers and subcontractors are selected from around the world, based on the principle of open competition.
Saipem Canada Inc. uses a Vendor Management process to evaluate the reliability of vendors (both suppliers and subcontractors) in terms of their technical, financial and organizational capabilities.
Vendor management process includes:
- Fair and structured approach to qualification
- Compliance with laws, Saipem Canada Inc. Code of Ethics and commercial obligations
- Monitoring of suppliers’ performance.
Saipem Canada Inc.'s vendor qualification process is graded on the basis of criticality and risk level of products and services. The criteria used for selecting suppliers and subcontractors include not only their capability to meet economic, financial, technical and organizational requirements, but also include compliance with Saipem Canada's Inc. Sustainability, HSE Policies and standards/procedures. The requirements are verified by means of a questionnaire, additional technical documents and assessment visits in case of critical and important supplies.
Monitoring and control of suppliers’ performance is a valuable and constant process for our success and it is achieved through Vendor Feedback process. This process covers every phase of the relationship with vendors, such as bid, order management and execution, and the characteristics of the relationship, for example, punctuality, quality and behaviour. All Vendor Management activities are focused on the improvement and development of suppliers and subcontractors. Saipem Canada Inc. has also implemented a dedicated approach to high impact products and services through Strategic Sourcing.
