How to become a supplier
We aim to buy goods and services
- ethically and
We also have to follow a range of UK legislation in this area. In particular, the requirements of the Utilities Contracts Regulations.
We use the Achilles Utilities Vendor Database (UVDB) when looking for potential suppliers. For the majority of our purchases, it is a condition that suppliers register on the UVDB.
In certain cases, we would also need suppliers to prove further compliance around
- health and safety
- environmental capabilities
- corporate social responsibility
giving us a higher level of assurance using the Achilles Verify process.
