ÖBB operates a standardised, group-wide system for assessing suppliers. We evaluate existing suppliers along the supply chain for the aspects of Environment & Social, Quality, Service, Costs, Delivery/Contractual Performance, and Innovation Capacity. The supplier assessment is a target-actual comparison of the rendered deliveries and services with regard to the contractually established agreements.
The assessment is generally presented for a supplier and a product group. Suppliers that make deliveries and render services in different product groups may receive several assessments within a given period.
