Typically, supplier management programs will use a supplier survey or an on-site audit to verify if a supplier is complaint with the requirements of a standard or regulation. However, for a supplier management program to be value added to an organization, the supplier evaluation should look beyond the requirements of a standard or regulation. Supplier auditing should also consider items such as supplier capability, capacity, and contingency plans.
