Our Business Relationship
As an Ada Technologies supplier, you will be expected to provide value-added products and services, which help our business:
- Meet or exceed Ada Technologies customer expectations
- Better meet the challenges of our global markets
The supplier relationship needs to help support Ada Technologies’ growth, reduce costs, improve Ada Technologies’ productivity and either reduce Ada Technologies’ working capital demands or increase Ada Technologies’ cash flow. If you are selected as an Ada Technologies supplier, you will be expected to demonstrate consistent improvement in each of these areas and to follow very specific guidelines to help deliver lower total cost.
Our suppliers are also expected to comply with all applicable laws and to conduct business ethically. These and other expectations are more fully outlined in our standard Purchase Order Agreement. In addition, we have developed various business conduct standards for our suppliers in areas such as the environment, workplace health & safety, and human resources. These standards continue to evolve in response to rapidly changing social views on the proper role of international corporations and their role in shaping global supply chain performance.
As a matter of corporate policy, ADA Technologies Operations Department is responsible for managing the entire purchasing process working with both internal clients and our suppliers, and must approve all contracts for the purchase of goods or services.
In order to be considered for selection as an Ada Technologies supplier:
- Each invoice must match the corresponding Ada Technologies Purchase Order, including Ada Technologies specified payment terms. Changes to Purchase Orders must be reported using Purchase Order Acknowledgements. Invoices not matching Ada Technologies Purchase Orders will be returned unpaid.
Suppliers are selected based on their ability to meet Ada Technologies requirements including technical capability, product and service quality, innovative product and service improvements, responsiveness, timely and accurate delivery, total cost, financial strength and best overall value. These are consistent with Ada Technologies own expectations for service to its customers and reflect the spirit of partnership we expect with our suppliers.
