The inclusion in the supplier register is done by the Purchasing Office that determines the opportunity or need to include new suppliers and formalizes such operation by asking the supplier to fill out a self-assessment questionnaire that is further used to examine the suitability for supply. At this stage, economic-financial elements, technical and human resources, legal aspects and specific experience are evaluated.
The questionnaire must be specific for the product categories that the supplier has applied for.
If the evaluation of this first stage is successful, the supplier must adhere to the Master Group’s Code of Ethics and also sign the Non-Disclosure Agreement.
During the supply relationship, Master Group carries out regular performance assessments, using information collected from various persons of its organization, and performs visit and audits at supplier premises.
For any further information and to submit the self-assessment questionnaire, please send an email to the Purchasing Office.
