SUPPLY CHAIN & SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT
For purchases which have been made before and where a contract has been set up, then that supplier will be used again. All contracts are held in the Purchase Ledger Department. These suppliers are selected based on good historical performance.
Where a new supplier is required, a selection of quotes will be obtained and the supplier best suited to the requirements of Security Plus + Limited will be selected. For each new supplier selected a file will be created, which will contain any correspondence (other than invoices, delivery notes etc.) and a copy of the contract (where applicable).
Where goods supplied do not meet the standard expected then the Purchase Ledger Department will receive a copy of the Supplier Evaluation Form. Depending on the seriousness of the faulty goods, either the Finance Director or any other relevant Manager will contact the supplier to ascertain the reasons and any form of recompense.
The evaluation form will be retained in the supplier’s file and the performance of the supplier will be continually reviewed. Where it is deemed that the supplier is not providing the service required by Security Plus + Limited then a new supplier will be sought, as above.
