Supplier Development - Assessments And Audits
Supplier development is the foundation of establishing long-term and prosperous relationships with suppliers. At Corbus, we ensure that our client’s resources are utilized wisely in the supplier pre-qualification process. With our strong domain expertise, in direct materials and our impressive digital emphasis, we generate supplier assessments and audits to enable our clients to make quick and well-informed decisions.
Corbus utilizes a methodical approach and framework to encompass supplier discovery, supplier qualification, RFx management and part qualification. The assessment includes an onsite audit to gauge the general and financial capability, technical and manufacturing capability, quality systems, and the overall capacity of the suppliers. Our research and analytics team also aids in secondary research to further identify the best suppliers and build an initial supplier profile before proceeding to the contract stage.
We also own RFx management. We engage in the First Article Inspection, continual purchases, and ensure the supplier is meeting client expectations by keeping track of KPIs through our Digital Tools that provide insightful metrics and reports.

In addition to common delivery and quality KPIs, our clients can tap into the Corbus library of category specific KPIs to objectively assess the performance of their suppliers.
Supplier management is never complete unless supplier performance is tied directly to the overall risk that the supplier carries. Our impressive and comprehensive risk assessment framework provides a 360 view of the financial and operational stability of each supplier. The framework utilized enables our clients to integrate other third party risk ratings into the equation so that a comprehensive risk rating is discovered.
