Our supply chain management team continually reviews and benchmarks partners against other providers and UK market performance standards.
We also conduct regular cost monitoring and market testing to assess how competitive our partners are. This continuous process encourages each supply chain partner to deliver constant improvements.
At both the tender and contract renewal stage we work to ensure we understand our customers’ requirements so we can deliver a solution that best matches them.
Our customers feel that the quality of our supply chain makes us stand out, as does our ability to demonstrate open and transparent value.
By adopting leading industry standards and techniques in sustainable procurement and applying the recommended principles and process of the ISO 20400 standard (Sustainable Procurement), we are leading the way in the field.
We are a founding Partner of the award winning Supply Chain Sustainability School and invite all of our supply chain partners to participate in the School’s learning and development programme. Our CEO, Keith Chanter is on the board. We’re committed to delivering socially, economically and environmentally responsible services and this requires pro-active support from our partners.
