Improvement objectives

An increase in the number of product categories subject to the supplier qualification process is a constant improvement objective in Terna’s procurement strategy.

As far as contract work is concerned, the objective is to increase the share of purchases from qualified firms until it is almost 100% of the total sum spent, with the exclusion of extraordinary contracts for work that is not normally part of Terna’s business.

In 2008, the Company established the technical requirements for qualification in the category of cable-laying, cutting vegetation and painting.

In 2009, it established the technical requirements for qualification in the category of electro-mechanical installations and started training courses for the categories of vegetation cutting and painting.
