Supplier Development

Supplier development is the process of working with certain suppliers on a one-to-one basis to improve their performance to benefit delivery of the overall contract.  These should be prioritised in terms of the size/value of the contract and any associated risks.

Supplier development can:

  • improve supplier performance
  • reduce costs
  • resolve any quality issues
  • develop new routes to supply
  • improve business alignment between buyer and supplier
  • address sustainability risks and issues
