For Red Eléctrica, its suppliers are a key element in its productive processes, together with the equipment, materials and services they provide the Company. In the case of those supplies which Red Eléctrica considers strategic for its facilities, the quotations are requested in a general manner from suppliers who have been qualified by the Company.
All suppliers, even if qualification is not necessary, must be assessed to determine the supplier company’s capacity to meet commitments. For this reason, if a company is interested in becoming a supplier of Red Eléctrica, it must first send the information requested through the basic supplier registration system.
The information received will be analysed by Red Eléctrica: if we are interested in the goods or services and the supplier needs to be qualified (in the case of supplies or services which are considered strategic), the qualification process shall be commenced. If it is not necessary for the supplier to be qualified, due to the type of supply or service it offers, they will be taken into account for Red Eléctrica's possible future needs. In the case of purchasing processes for exceptional services, the qualification occurs at the moment of the tendering process.
Both the supplier and its goods or services shall be evaluated during the qualification process. This means that the supplier will be evaluated in regard to the goods or services which it offers Red Eléctrica. All the conditioning factors related to price, finance, technical aspects, quality, safety, the environment and any other aspect deemed necessary shall be evaluated.
In order to participate in the tenders associated with supplies or services of high criticality and impact, you must first comply with the requirement to be registered in RePro system. If you have any questions about this registration, please contact the company called Achilles through its website or by calling +34 91 4264935.
Informative note regarding documentary proof of information changes of a business nature. Any documentation that serves to prove a change of a business nature (company name, change of Tax Identification Code (CIF), contact information, etc.) should be sent by email to email@example.com.
Once the supply process has begun, Red Eléctrica continuously monitors the performance of its suppliers and verifies compliance with all the requirements (business, financial, technical and sustainability) established by the Group.
The main actions carried out during the monitoring process are the following, according to type:
Continuous improvement of the monitoring process
Red Eléctrica continues to work to improve communication and transparency with its suppliers in the monitoring and tendering processes. This allows, on the one hand, a more fluid dialogue to be established and ensures that Red Eléctrica’s expectations are known by the supplier, and on the other, it contributes to supplier development, increasing the commitment to creating value for them.
To this end, a series of actions are being carried out, such as: strengthening the figure of the Key Supplier Manager, which will enable a more fluid communication with suppliers that are key for Red Eléctrica, as well as the progressive application of service level agreements and of performance indicators in contracts.
