Dialogue with suppliers on 15th of December, 2020 – online
Scope of FEW Baltic II project
The first dialogue with suppliers took place on December 15, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the meeting was held online. Despite this, it brought together 172 participants who had an opportunity in a virtual space to meet and ask questions about the supply chain to RWE representatives.
The purpose of the first meeting was to familiarise suppliers with the scope of the project, the status of the works, the procurement strategy, as well as the health and safety requirements. A key element of the first dialogue with suppliers was to present plans for 2021, which made it possible for suppliers to gain knowledge of upcoming milestones and planned tenders.
An increase in the number of registrants in RWE´s supplier database, as well as inquiries regarding the schedule, scope of future contracts and subsequent dialogues testifies to the great success of the event held by RWE.
