Supplier assessment and assurance specialist Altius has published a free guide to help facilities managers improve contractor compliance.
The guide outlines the steps facilities managers can take to address common contractor management problems that may present supply chain risk. Such problems include a lack of central supplier information, the complexity of managing supplier lists and difficulty in sourcing good quality new contractors.
Manage suppliers better
Managing supplier lists is one of the critical steps covered in the guide, including creating a central repository of supplier information and encouraging sharing of information to avoid duplication of effort.
The guide also includes advice on how to move towards an evidence based compliance process and transparent decision making process, together with recommended tools to get the job done.
Gary Plant, Managing Director of Altius,said: "Contractor compliance is a critical to the smooth running of your supply chain. It's important to have a robust strategy and framework in place that sets out exactly what is expected of them and what the timeframe is. This requires policies and rules; contracts and specifications; controls and restraints and continuous monitoring."
