How we work with suppliers and contractors

We operate in a wide variety of supply markets that have different levels of complexity, risk and opportunity. It’s why we work collaboratively with our suppliers and take account of the supply market they operate in and reflect the strategic importance of thegoods and services they provide. In doing so we’re able to improve supply chain performance, reduce costs and effectively manage risk.

Complying to regulations

Our supply agreements are awarded in compliance with the European UnionUtilities Contract Regulations. The format of these agreements, for example contract length and number of suppliers, is determined on a case-by-case basis. Typically, agreements will be developed taking into consideration the nature of the market and the relative size of spend on the goods or services.

Where legislation requires us to make a call for competition, potential suppliers will be identified from responses to advertisements in the Official Journal of The European Union or via the Achilles Utilities Vendor Database.Where a call for competition isn’t required, potential suppliers are identified from numerous sources including trade associations, our approved supplier database, the internet, supplier catalogues and from historical expressions of interest.

Continuous improvement

Our supply chain and procurement team continually seek to improve the waywe interact with our suppliers. Key to this is adopting the latest best practiced developments in supply chain and procurement through benchmarking and research, as well as listening to feedback from our suppliers. We also evaluate and welcome alternative approaches to sourcing, for example e-tendering, as we believe technology is a valuable way to streamlineprocurement processes and share information with our suppliers.

Corporate and procurement responsibility

We believe strongly in honesty, integrity and fair competition, which is why allour sourcing activities are compliant with the Competition Act 1998 andOFWAT's Regulatory Guideline ‘Transfer Pricing in The Water Industry’.When dealing with suppliers we never abuse our purchasing power, changepayment terms or break confidentiality. Naturally, we expect our suppliers to2share these practices. We’ll also continue to develop sustainable procurementpolicies that encompass economic, environmental and social considerations.

How we manage purchase orders

If your business has provided us with a chargeable service, you’ll need us toemail you a purchase order to add your invoice. Purchase orders are raised against our general terms and conditions unless the purchase order states that other terms and conditions apply, for example a specific contract. In thiscase, we'll agree any changes to the standard terms and conditions with thesupplier in advance.
