Highmark Corporate Procurement's vision is to:
We choose suppliers based on responsiveness, timeliness, quality, cost, and added value. For critical commodities, we work to fulfill these needs by building long-term relationships
with select suppliers.
Preferred suppliers must show that their products and services are competitively priced. They should also offer innovative ideas to help us improve our operations while lowering our acquisition and ownership costs.
Once you're a preferred supplier, our continued relationship will depend on your ongoing commitment to meeting these goals.
Our supplier performance standards help us gather the data we need to regularly assess suppliers and make improvements.
These performance expectations include:
Corporate Procurement's job is to make sure the company's purchases deliver the best value and the least risk.
Our purchasing experts are committed to sound business practices and follow the Institute for Supply Management's Principles and Standards of Ethical Supply Management Conduct. As a federal contractor, we’re also required to follow additional rules.
