A collaboration based on the quest for superior performance
To manage its own performance, the company must manage its suppliers.
Purchasing: key tasks
The Purchasing division makes the purchases required for projects, maintaining works and information systems, and telecommunications, as well as general purchases.
Its role is to:
- Design and manage strategic purchases.
- Ensure supplier sourcing, in particular via active monitoring and benchmarks.
- Check the supply market.
- Monitor and develop suppliers’ performance.
- Set up framework contracts or spot contracts.
Different types of contract
GRTgaz makes a distinction between two types of contract: framework contracts and ordinary contracts. For ordinary contracts, the service provider undertakes to deliver a supply, carry out works or perform a service for the benefit of GRTgaz in return for payment. The performance of framework contracts, however, requires that one of more orders are issued.
