Supplier Policies - Intel's policies for supplier operational standards

Supplier Policies

Intel holds the many suppliers with whom we do business accountable for operating with the same high standards that we expect of ourselves and to adhere to Intel’s policies referenced in the terms of our agreements.

Notification of Equal Employment Opportunity/
Affirmative Action Obligations

Intel is an equal opportunity employer and federal contractor or subcontractor. Consequently, Intel and suppliers with whom Intel does business agree that, as applicable, they will abide by the requirements of 41 CFR 60-1.4(a), 41 CFR 60-300.5(a) and 41 CFR 60-741.5(a) and that these laws are incorporated herein by reference. These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals based on their status as protected veterans or individuals with disabilities, and prohibit discrimination against all individuals based on their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identify or national origin. These regulations require that covered prime contractors and subcontractors take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identify, national origin, protected veteran status or disability. Intel and its suppliers also agree that, as applicable, they will abide by the requirements of Executive Order 13496 (29 CFR Part 471, Appendix A to Subpart A), relating to the notice of employee rights under federal labor law.


Utilizing the Cybersecurity Framework

Supplier agrees to consider the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, Version 1.0, published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology on February 12, 2014 as a reference document when establishing its system for managing the security of Intel’s information.

IT Security Policies

Information Security has two Supplier Requirement documents used to set baseline requirements and assess suppliers who are managing information on behalf of Intel. All suppliers managing information on behalf of Intel must meet the minimum requirements outlined in the Supplier Security Requirements and Expectations document.

For suppliers who are managing Intel Restricted or Intel Top Secret information on behalf of Intel additional requirements are defined and explored in the Enhanced Data Security Assessment form.

If a supplier is currently supporting Intel they may be required to download and respond to the identified documents and may be subject to a formal supplier review. If requested to submit responses for a formal review by the Intel Business Owner the forms can be found at the links provided. All responses should be completed by the Suppliers Information Security professional and sent to your business owner and
