Suppliers Evaluation


Relationship management

By creating opportunities for our suppliers, we enhance our contribution to society. To be an EDP Group supplier and enjoy all concomitant advantages, you must first register your application.

One of the strategic vectors for the development of supplier relations is their evaluation. This process is based on rational, uniform and mostly quantitative criteria, which, combined with clear and meaningful procedures, foster the development of EDP’s relationship with its supplying chain.

The implementation of this method for the evaluation of suppliers, the monitoring of the process and the systematization of suppliers' performance translates into the functional coordination of multidisciplinary teams. The operationalization of the suppliers' evaluation process is carried out by the structures that are in charge of logistics and by the Business Units that are supplied with that particular good or service.

The main goals guiding the suppliers' evaluation process are:

  • Reducing risks when selecting suppliers;
  • Improving the performance of EDP Group suppliers, from a continuous improvement perspective;
  • Meeting quality (ISO 9001: 2008) and environmental (ISO 14001: 2012) standard requirements;
  • Meeting specification requirements for occupational safety and health (OHSAS 18001: 2007);
