    Prospective Supplier Review Process

    The Schneider Electric Supplier Database is used as a reference system by the purchasing department to identify potential diverse suppliers.   

    Perspective suppliers will be required to successfully complete Schneider Electric’s internal Supplier Auditing process.  Our Supplier Development team reviews all suppliers in the areas of supplier diversity validation: diversity spend, financial status indicators, operational product performance and service capabilities and, if applicable, verifying your business’ diversity and/or small business status.  Perspective suppliers must agree to and operate under Schneider Electric’s recognized guidelines including but not limited to:

               • Sustainability 
               • ISO 26000 - Social Responsibility - ISO  

    Any concerns about this arrangement can be addressed to Betty.Oliver@Schneider-Electric.com.
