Companies and Projects have to deal with and manage various suppliers. Supplier performance and capability is crucial for the success of a company or a specific project. Therefore TÜV NORD Southern Africa has established processes and highly skilled resources to support our clients in the selection of the right supplier for the right task. The goal of TUV NORD Southern Africa is to add value to its clients, to identify their risks being involved with specific potential suppliers and to minimise the risk of project failure due to false supplier selection.
Capacity and Competence Assessment of Suppliers
TÜV NORD Southern Africa has developed a process to enable it to assist its clients in performing supplier assessments pre-contract award.
The supplier assessment process is structured to take account of the relative importance of the service or product to be delivered with respect to its impact on safety (conventional and nuclear), operations, cost and scarcity of the services or product required.
The deliverable of the supplier assessment process is a risk profile of the potential supplier across its entire value chain that enables our clients to make an informed decision on which risks are acceptable and which needs to be dealt with. Further benefits derived from our client perspective is the inputs the risk profile provides for its supplier development programs, its supplier performance monitoring programs as well as its supplier audits post contract award.
