We are committed to working closely with our suppliers to ensure 100 percent on-time delivery, zero defects, and the lowest cost for the goods and services that we procure.

Supplier Performance Rating System (SPRS)

SAGRAD's Supplier Performance Rating System (SPRS) is a composite score of a supplier's performance, comprising a Quality Rating (QR), a Delivery Rating (DR) and a Business Management Rating (BMR). All suppliers receive a scorecard indicating their overall composite score/classification. A determination on the frequency (quarterly or annually) of supplier performance ratings is based on business and technical risk assessment.

Certified Supplier Status

Certified Status is granted to suppliers that consistently achieve the established quality products and on-time delivery goals.
