Aveng has partnered with Achilles, one of the world’s largest service providers of global supply chain risk management solutions, to implement a standardized and streamlined online Supplier Registration Process that will be deployed across our total supply base for all our Operating Groups.
The Registration Process comprises two separate ecosystems – the Aveng Supplier Registration System and the Achilles Construction Africa Community Registration - as well as an on-site Audit process. Both ecosystems, including the Audit Process, are managed by our partner Achilles.
Why we have implemented this
Implementation of the Supplier Registration Process will support the proper evaluation of our suppliers based on information that has been carefully validated by an independent, impartial third party (Achilles) and enable us to track critical compliance against key aspects such as Safety, Health, Environment & Quality (SHEQ); Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE); legal and financial.
Aveng’s new Supplier Registration Process is critical to meeting our regulatory obligations, particularly South Africa’s B-BBEE Act, and is an integral part of our sourcing strategy.
Importance of Registration
Aveng will be using the data collected through the Supplier Registration System(s) as the preferred source of supplier information for all existing and potential suppliers.
