Procurement Practices Management Approach
Supply Chain Management
Following the creation of a supply chain management model by working on the aspects that set Doğuş Otomotiv’s operations apart among other supply chains in 2013, the model began to be implemented on the field in 2014. A Doğuş Otomotiv based learning and mentorship strategy has been incorporated into this model that we named the “3-Way Sustainable Supply Chain Management”.
Doğuş Otomotiv works in partnership with a number of local and international suppliers, including OEMs. As a Group with distributorship as its main business, Doğuş Otomotiv prefers to procure local products and services in line with its strategy of fostering economic development in the regions it operates.
Doğuş Otomotiv began working of the “3-Way Sustainable Supply Chain Management Model” in 2013. OEMs, as the most important link in the company’s supply chain, and their high standard practices such as quality control processes enhance the Doğuş Otomotiv Supply Chain Model. Passing on the chain effect of this model to Doğuş Otomotiv suppliers as well as Authorized Dealers and After-sales Service Centers naturally brings about quality, practices in higher standards, and development across our suppliers and Authorized Dealers and After-sales Service Centers.
Risk Management in Supplier Selection
Supplier selection criteria are determined and applied by the Procurement Department. In addition to these procedures, Doğuş Otomotiv Code of Ethics are also observed in this process.
Health and Safety Effects of Products and Services
Dining halls, cafeteria and employee shuttle buses are inspected by an independent inspection company for cleanliness and diseases such as legionella.
Furthermore, catering, cleaning, and transportation services are audited monthly by the Administrative Affairs Team of the Company, and reported to the service providers.
Cleaning, catering, security and transportation service providers of Doğuş Oto have submitted risk analysis reports in accordance with Occupational Health and Safety requirements. The companies that provide such services are represented in the Occupational Health and Safety Committees, resulting in provision of more efficient services for the Company employees by these providers in terms of Occupational Health and Safety
