KEOLIS’ PURCHASING POLICY: AN AMBITIOUS AND RIGOROUS APPROACH
Suppliers play a major role in the quality and level of service Keolis MHI provides to passengers and local transport authorities. Keolis MHI’s approach to purchasing is ambitious and rigorous: the procurement teams implement a comprehensive policy across the networks, helping improve the competitiveness of Keolis MHI.
The Purchasing Department oversees the quality and competitiveness of products and/or services purchased. Dedicated teams ensure constant compliance with key principles:
Compliance with current national and international regulations and laws.
Competitive bids to guarantee fairness, integrity, and the absence of conflicts of interest.
Pursuit of economic performance according to a “total cost” logic.
Concerted action between the prescriber, the buyer, and the supplier.
Confidentiality and treatment of sensitive information.
RESPONSIBLE AND SOLIDARITY PURCHASING
Keolis’ purchasing policy forms a major component of our environmental responsibility approach.
The sustainable, socially responsible purchasing policy focuses on three main areas:
Solidarity-based economy and local integration Keolis MHI is firmly anchored in the communities where it operates networks, and contributes to local economic development by selecting local suppliers.
Environment and safety Purchasing plays an important part in Keolis MHI’ environmental commitments, it also helps manage human and material safety risks, and contributes to the protection of data and expertise.
Supplier relationship Keolis MHI's supplier policy integrates a “total cost” approach, ensures transparent relations and equal treatment of suppliers, and reduces the risk of mutual dependence.
