Purchasing's Strategic Objectives
Intelís purchasing organization is the focal point for all contacts with suppliers concerning the commitment of company funds for materials and services. It is instrumental in establishing and managing effective supplier relationships. It is Purchasingís responsibility to locate and maintain the best source of supply. Our mutual success depends on every supplier supporting us in achieving the following strategic objectives:
Purchasing is chartered with full responsibility for the procurement of goods and services and to conduct all purchasing negotiations with suppliers. Therefore, large or small, we need your interest and support in meeting the following policies and procedures:
It's our general requirement that we use Intel standard contract management process and Intel standard agreementsí templates when contracting to our suppliers. Any change of standard process or agreement form is subject to Intel purchasing and legal review and may take additional time and joint effort. Using third partyís contract template is undesirable and laborious for Intel and is subject to additional Intel legal expertise.
Intel respects the intellectual property rights of others-business associates, suppliers, and competitors alike.
Purchasing will conduct itself ethically and fairly in relation to the suppliers with whom Intel does business. Supplier code of conduct training is available via our supplier training link.
Intel personnel and members of their families worldwide are prohibited from accepting gifts or gratuities of any form from current or potential suppliers. Acceptance of such offerings may be interpreted as an attempt to improperly influence decisions. Unsolicited advertising or promotional items with logos are acceptable as long as their value is less than $25.00.
While Intel may sell its products to its suppliers, it is against Intel policy to require a supplier to purchase our products as a condition for Intel doing business with that supplier.
Intel maintains a strict policy that neither party may use the otherís name in advertisements, press releases, design win announcements, or business level disclosure without prior written notice by a Vice President of Materials.
Small and Minority Suppliers
Intel appreciates the valuable contributions made by small, disadvantaged, and women-owned businesses. Therefore, a good faith effort is made to allow qualified small and minority businesses the maximum practicable opportunity to receive a fair share of Intelís business.
To ensure a drug and risk free environment, suppliers are required to support Intelís policy which prohibits the use, sale, or possession of illegal drugs and alcoholic beverages on Intel premises or work areas.
Environment, Health and Safety
Intel expects suppliers to understand and fully comply with all applicable international, national, state and local laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, all environmental, health and safety (EHS) and related laws and regulations. In addition, suppliers must agree to abide by all Intel rules, including but not limited to, all applicable EHS policies, procedures and guidelines. Further, to the extent that suppliers obtain, use, handle, or transport and hazardous materials (as defined by any law, standard or practice) on Intelís property or to perform work for Intel, suppliers must warrant that they understand the nature and hazards associated with the use, handling and transportation of any such materials. Suppliers also must (i) agree to be fully responsible and indemnify Intel for any liability resulting from the use, handling or transportation of hazardous materials by suppliers or their contractors, and (ii) have in place decision, management, control and continuous improvement systems to effectively manage the product safety of such materials.
