Organisations should look to establish relationships with their supply chain to mutual advantage, and decisions taken or changes made in the procurement process should be done so by joint agreement.
The Organisation Can Demonstrate and Supply Chain Partners Can Validate:
That its procurement processes, including communications, the selection of Supply Chain Partners and completion of due diligence activities, are fair and transparent.
That it has clear and effective strategies in place to manage the TUPE process.
That it has a clear rationale in place to support a viable and transparent allocation of market share within supply chains.
That it has proactively negotiated volume, funding/finance and performance expectations with its Supply Chain Partners ahead of relationship commencement.
