Our approach to procurement

Through effective business partnering, the Procurement function is committed to supporting our business operations and strategy. To support these objectives it is imperative that Babcock has an efficient and highly effective supply chain. This means we need trusted and collaborative suppliers to support us in delivering ultra-reliable service to our customers.

Babcock buys a wide range of goods and services and needs high-performing suppliers across all aspects of our supply chain to ensure that the customer’s money is spent efficiently and responsibly. We need suppliers who possess the appetite to drive continuous improvement through innovation and bringing best practice into the Babcock organisation.

Our specialist procurement teams are integrated into operations and adopt common, high standards – sharing best practices and supplier insights across the Group. Common expenditure across the company is managed and governed using a Group-Led Category Management approach.
