Spot Buy Capability: Three-Tier Supplier Vetting

In addition to a diverse supply base for the Spot Buy capability, we also provide a three-tiered supplier vetting process to help ensure the solution meets our customers’ standards.

SAP Ariba solutions are trusted by many of the world’s largest and most respected organizations. To maintain that trust, we partner with suppliers and marketplace providers that share our values and commitment to upholding ethical principles and purpose-driven objectives.

An example of this is our supplier diversity program, which was developed to build strong relationships with certified women- and minority-owned businesses and historically disadvantaged firms. This remains an important focus and, where possible, we continue to identify diversity status within a supplier’s detailed catalog item descriptions. The result is the Spot Buy capability, which enables our customers to achieve their diversity goals by directing spend to these kinds of organizations at the time of purchase.

In addition to a diverse supply base for the Spot Buy capability, we also provide a three-tiered supplier vetting process to help ensure Spot Buy meets our customers’ vetting and compliance standards. Every Spot Buy supplier on SAP Business Network must pass our three-tier vetting process. Download this datasheet to learn more.
