Prospective Suppliers

 

Register your Interest in Transacting with BPSABPSA invites prospective suppliers to complete the Prospective Supplier Registration to be included in our supplier database. Please note that completing the prospective supplier registration does not imply a contract, or firm commitment by BPSA to purchase goods or services from the supplier.

 

The supplier database is one of the channels BPSA uses to ensure key suppliers are identified. Please note that registering on the supplier database does not guarantee that you will be included in our closed / restricted tender or RFQ process. When a sourcing opportunity for your industry-specific business arises, BPSA procurement team members will access the database to search for suppliers who meet BPSA’s minimum standard requirements.  At that point, you may be contacted to submit additional information. Please submit the completed form to BPSA Supplier Database .

Supplier Appraisal and Approval

Our procurement team follows a detailed pre-qualification process, depending on the risk exposure associated with the goods and services, to ensure our suppliers meet our compliance criteria. The accreditation involves: 

 

  • HSSE Accreditation.   
  • Counterparty Due Diligence checks accreditation. 
  • Technical Accreditation ( if applicable) .

 

Suppliers who have met the criteria will be registered on our preferred supplier list (PSL). Validity of accreditation is normally for a minimum of a year; prior to using the supplier it is mandatory to check the validity of the accreditation. Please note that only procurement has a delegated authority to prequalify and load new suppliers on the BPSA system based on the need and applicable sourcing strategies.
