Why Vodafone Our company About Us Vodafone in New Zealand Our suppliers

We expect the best from the people we do business with

Vodafone is a global business and our suppliers and partners are essential to our success. They provide us with products, solutions, services, the latest innovations and help us manage the peaks and troughs of an ever-changing market.

We like to think we’re a good company to work for - and we want to do the right thing both socially and environmentally. So we expect the same high standards from the people who work with us.

We also like to work together with other companies in our sector to maintain consistent quality in the supply chain.

Trusting you to do the right thing

Our Code of Ethical Purchasing (CEP) sets out Vodafone's expectations of suppliers. CEP requirements are integrated into our supplier qualification process, to ensure that all new suppliers are aware of our expectations from the start. We like to engage directly with our first-tier suppliers and assess their compliance with the CEP. We also expect our global strategic suppliers to engage with their own suppliers in a similar way.

What we can expect from you

Being a supplier to Vodafone means you have particular responsibilities and formal requirements we need you to follow. Our Standard Terms and Conditions outline the commercial contractual elements for purchase of any standard product or service and accompany any purchase order raised.

All our New Zealand suppliers are subject to a qualification and approval process. This includes acceptance of our CEP and management of Corporate Responsibility issues in their own supply chain. Should a local risk assessment show any cause for concern, the supplier is required to go through the global qualification process, which involves completing a detailed self-assessment before they can progress to the next stage of qualification.

In line with our global process, should a supplier be identified as medium or high-risk they will be referred for an audit. In some cases, a site assessment may also be necessary. The supplier will only qualify as a Vodafone supplier after all of these requirements have been met.

Like many big organisations, we have certain procedures and processes we need to follow. It means we can be sure that we’re working with the kind of companies it’s good to do business with.

How do I become a Vodafone supplier?

If you’re interested in becoming a Vodafone supplier you should start by familiarising yourself with our Code of Ethical Purchasing (CEP) and our Terms and Conditions.
