Supply Chain expenditure accounts for 80% of LLW Repository Ltd’s (LLWR) annual spending and it is therefore important to implement cost effective and supplier responsive solutions.
Successful Working Partnerships
The priorities for LLWR are to attract and retain suppliers to whom our business is important and to encourage healthy competition. In addition, we also aim to promote the use of local suppliers and SMEs, wherever possible. We are also seeking to rationalise the size and scope of our supply chain, while developing improved working relationships and longer term supply chain planning.
Supply Chain Charter
LLWR has given its commitment to the Supply Chain Charter for Nuclear Decommissioning Sites. The Supply Chain Charter aims to foster good working relations across the NDA Estate supply chain, with all parties signing up to a set of principles encouraging mutually beneficial and rewarding relationships.
Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) Action Plan
LLWR wishes to support the Government’s SME Agenda. In order to achieve this, we have developed an action plan to increase opportunities for SMEs.
LLWR has signed up to the Government’s pledge which lays out a number of initiatives that are designed to improve the way business is conducted with the Private Sector.
