Supplier Management Policy

Ensuring suppliers are properly vetted, negotiated with, and able to serve as a valuable resource for providing those products and services helps both the IT department and the company itself succeed. This also helps protect company data and employees from potential data breaches produced by associations with subpar external entities.

The purpose of this policy from TechRepublic Premium is to provide guidelines for creating the foundations of beneficial supplier relations.

From the policy:

Qualifying suppliers should be prepared to offer, document and discuss:

How their products and services operate and benefits provided.

Access needed to company systems and/or data.

How their own staff is vetted and monitored.

Service level agreements.
