Agilent's relationships with suppliers are of great strategic importance. Common sense, good judgment, and the highest standards of integrity will be used in working with our suppliers. The results Agilent Technologies seeks will not occur from random sourcing or from selecting suppliers solely based on competitive quotations. It will result from making the correct selection of suppliers, and then working closely with them in specific areas to improve quality and productivity.
The basic strategy for establishing these 'working relationships' is through the establishment of mutual performance expectations and measures. Agilent also expects its suppliers to adhere to the quality, product regulatory, social responsibility and environmental principles that are core to our company. Listed below are links to various Agilent Policies, Position Statements, Quality Requirements, Environmental Requirements and other expectations:
