The Registration process is an essential requirement for any company who intends to become a supplier or apply for a Qualification Process issued by any EDP Group company.
This system consists essentially of a supplier search and selection tool out of a corporate database that is shared by all companies within the EDP Group, managed in outsourcing with Achilles.
The present system is based on a three level registration, where mobility lies on the annual turnover with EDP Group, as outlined:
I – Basic Level – potential supplier companies or suppliers with an annual turnover with EDP Group below 10.000 €;
II – Standard Level – suppliers with an annual turnover with EDP Group between 10.000 € and 150.000 €;
III – Strategic Level – suppliers with an annual turnover with EDP Group over 150.000 €.
