The registration process is an essential requirement for any company wishing to be a supplier or to take part in qualification procedures organised by EDP group companies.
The main advantages of registering are:
- participation in electronic purchase/sale of products and/or services procedures;
- ability to change or confirm registration information at any time using an exclusive access key;
- creation of a space for uploading documentation via the Internet in an expeditious manner, minimising the need to deliver documents in contract tendering procedures.
To register in the supplier registration system:
- Click on the registration link;
- Fill in/update the registration form;
- Submit the form;
- Validate the registration in GoSupply.
After the form has been validated, the supplier is successfully registered.
This system is based on a registration database segmented into four levels, according to the following level of information:
- General data
- General financial data
Elementary level data +
- Complete financial data
- Contractual obligations (Tax Authority, Social Security, etc.)
Basic level data +
- General compliance data
- General quality data
- General environmental data
- General prevention and safety data
- General sustainability data
Advanced level data +
- Complete compliance data
- Full quality data
- Full environmental data

*Suppliers will be invited to levels III and IV according to the criteria defined for the sustainability management of the EDP group’s supply chain.
The EDP group supplier registration system - EDPartners registration and supplier management (offered by GoSupply partner) essentially serves as a supplier search and selection tool in a database where all registered companies are listed.
Thus, a registered supplier is not automatically qualified.
The qualification process involves submitting an application to a supplier qualification system and being registered at Advanced level in GoSupply.
The key features supported by the negotiation platforms are:
- Easier and more available communication with suppliers;
- Simplification of the associated administrative tasks;
- Significant improvement in effectiveness and efficiency;
- Minimise errors and costs;
- Strengthening of transparency and equal opportunities among suppliers.

The contractual performance assessment is based on 4 criteria:
Supplier performance during delivery of the service/material based on the following themes:
- Performance in relation to contractual KPIs;
- Performance in relation to delivery dates;
- Quality of results;
- Communication and management;
- Solution of unforeseen problems.
Prevention and safety
Supplier performance in terms of behaviour with regard to prevention and safety laws and procedures:
- Safety policies;
- Training and dissemination;
- Protective equipment;
- Accident rates/Incident management.
Supplier performance in environmental management:
- Environmental policies;
- Training and dissemination;
- Waste treatment and resources use (energy, water);
- Incident management.
Behaviour of the supplier with regard to ethical issues, compliance with international laws and respect for the human rights of workers.
It consists of a structured and systematic programme of on-site audits carried out on the supplier's premises, preferably with its prior knowledge.
The EDPartners Assessment Programme enables the EDP group to know and secure its suppliers’ commitment to the themes of Corporate Sustainability through the identification of Non-Conformities (NC) and/or Improvement Opportunities (IO), as a result of the completed questionnaire.
A corrective and improvement action plan may be established for each supplier, following the completion of the ESG Assessment and depending on the result obtained.
The assessments carried out are based on the collection of evidence to verify compliance with EDP's 7 sustainability criteria:
- Strategic alignment;
- Occupational risks;
- Human resources;
- Technical requirements.
If non-conformities are identified, representing non-compliance with legal requirements or clauses of the EDP group code of conduct, a more detailed and rigorous monitoring plan is drawn up, whose actions to be implemented must be responded to EDP within 30 days of the audit, in order to resolve the situations within a maximum period of six months. After the implementation of the action plan, a new ESG assessment may be carried out on the supplier and, whenever a supplier does not comply with its plan, it may be excluded from EDP's supply chain.
