Cummins Inc. purchases many, many goods and services – both direct and indirect. We are eager to do business with those suppliers who offer the best combination of quality and value.
Corporate Purchasing supports supplier selection through a number of processes. Ultimately, however, entry into Cummins is governed by purchasing policy, which explains when and how we engage with suppliers directly, seek competitive quotations or hold sourcing events that allow suppliers to showcase their capabilities.
In any case, corporate purchasing does oversee the addition of new suppliers to the global database, which occurs only after you have secured business with Cummins but before your first delivery.
New Supplier Tools and Resources
If Cummins invites you to be a supplier, we require certain information to set your company up in our Global Supplier Master. For a checklist of required information, download the attached Excel spreadsheet. Be sure your correspondence is on your company’s letterhead, which must include an accurate legal address and telephone number; email, fax numbers and Web addresses are also desirable.
Supplier Code of Conduct Read the Supplier Code of Conduct (SCOC), introductory letter and response form. The signed form will be returned to your internal Cummins contact, with one of four responses checked. If your company has a code that meets or exceeds the provisions of the Cummins SCOC, we will accept a copy of the code as an attachment in email.
Supplier Diversity A level playing field. That is what Cummins endeavors to provide to all suppliers who wish to do business with us. To make sure we are inclusive, we invite diverse suppliers (for criteria, see Diversity Classification) to review information about the Company’s initiatives, click here: Supplier Diversity.
