Direct Sourcing Model
Direct monitoring efforts to drive better supplier performance. Self-governance concept has been launched for the higher performing suppliers (4C and 5C-rated suppliers), and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) as well as briefing materials have been developed. Briefing to suppliers was completed by end of 2010. Full implementation will take place in 2011. 75%
Drive efficiencies in monitoring coverage. Programme activities were redefined based on suppliers' KPI scores. Suppliers were notified of the need to upgrade the performance of 1C factories. Focus was on risk management of 2C factories and performance assessment of 3C factories. The services of external monitors were used for audits where internal resources were lacking. A capacity building programme is being developed for 2C and 3C factories to improve their performance. 75%
Indirect Sourcing Model
Extend the range of service capabilities (action plan development, KPI assessments) of external monitoring providers. All external monitoring companies are now developing corrective action plans. Only two external monitoring companies are qualified to complete KPI assessments. 50%

Continue dialogue with critical stakeholders and use the results to improve our programme.

In some cases these drove programmatic changes. 100%
