The Merlin Standard has been designed to recognise and promote sustainable excellence within supply chains and provide guidance to those seeking to achieve it. It is built upon four fundamental and integrated principles; supply chain design, commitment, conduct and review. These principles have been designed to examine key areas of the relationship between a prime contractor and its supply chain partners.
The aim of the Standard is to encourage excellent supply chain management and within this to ensure fair treatment of partners and subcontractors by Prime Contractors, to support development of healthy, high performing supply chain.
“…it’s a perfect relationship. They are always at the end of a phone & always offer to come out & support us.”
“…the up front communications were really good & we went in to the contracting with our eyes wide open.”
“…I think we’re managed in a more robust way now - not micromanaged though, we’re left to get on with what we do best.”
