Our Procurement Philosophy
We believe in giving equal opportunities to potential suppliers, and we try to award as much work as possible to companies local to our UK facilities, subject to them being competent, capable and affordable. We have a procurement system which facilitates this, resulting in purchase orders and contracts being issued on a regular basis to support our multi-million pound operations and maintenance requirements. Unless otherwise explicitly stated on our purchase orders, our standard terms and conditions for the supply of goods or services are used. They can be downloaded following the links on this webpage.
Responsibilities within the supply chain
Our ecological and social responsibilities also extend to our suppliers and therefore form an important component of MVV’s procurement terms and a key aspect when it comes to selecting suppliers and products.
Other factors that play a role in our selection process include efforts to fight corruption, to uphold human and employee rights and environmental protection. Within our electronic supplier management system, all new suppliers are required to make disclosures concerning environmental protection and social responsibility. Where possible, we particularly value local providers.back to top
