Our purpose is to provide energy needed today, while building a better world of energy for tomorrow. We welcome suppliers who support our vision of being a leading energy company in a net zero world.
With safety, sustainability and responsibility at the heart of all we do, we're keen to establish strong relationships with our suppliers because we know how critical they are to our business.
Below you’ll find information on our approach to procurement, including an update on our new Sourcing-to-Contract system.
JAGGAER SOURCE TO CONTRACT
From August 2021 onwards we have introduced our new Jaggaer Source to Contract system across SSE. As one of the most widely trusted procurement systems in the industry, Jaggaer will help to optimize our Source-to-Contract process by connecting our suppliers, sourcing activities and contracts in one place. Our process will continue to be free to use.
Many existing suppliers have been contacted to register on the new Jaggaer portal, and any new suppliers will receive invitations when selected to participate in tender events. The portal is now live at the link below, and the homepage contains useful information, a registration link and video guide, a list of current opportunities, and Jaggaer support telephone numbers, call back and email details.
Registered suppliers are asked to complete some basic on-boarding questions within their profile, which can then save time when completing PQQ and/or ITT submissions. Multiple supplier users can be added within the portal by the main registered user, with the ability to specify default contacts names for event notifications.
SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT CODE
Our Sustainable Procurement Code outlines the expectations and requirements on SSE’s suppliers and contractors, and their supply chains.
To ensure that SSE’s business is conducted ethically, sustainably and within the law, SSE expects its suppliers to meet the principles outlined in the Code and Guidance. This means as a minimum complying with local laws and regulations and respecting internationally recognised human and labour rights, however the values of fairness and respect are equally important to SSE.
