"Our pre-qualification process ensures all suppliers are screened and that we only work with suppliers who meet and uphold our rigorous standards. We use ISNetworld, a global contractor and supplier management resource, as well as internal subject-matter experts to pre-qualify suppliers and monitor ongoing supplier performance. We conducted approximately 40 onsite supplier assessments across North America in 2018, with each assessment requiring one to three days to complete. As we continue to implement our Supplier Code of Conduct, it will be integrated into our supplier performance management and relationship management processes. " p. 68
