Procurement Policies

      All the procurement of TSC must comply with the relevant provisions of the Government Procurement Act in order to achieve justice, openness and fairness, and the results have been good. The internal control system set up the Key Points for Financial and Labor Procurement Operations, Key Points for Bulk Grain Purchase, Operating Points of Project Purchase and Performance Management, and Operating Points of Public Selection of Technical Service and Labor Procurement. TSC has set up an outsourcing center as a dedicated unit in charge of purchasing and organizes doubts, objections, complaints and consulting related to the Government Procurement Act so as to complete the procurement system and increase procurement efficiency. New suppliers and existing suppliers should all meet the requirements of the Procurement Act.
      The selection of suppliers follows the prescriptions of the Government Procurement Act and also considers the sources of supply or services provided by domestic suppliers to support domestic industries. At present, apart from the 100% of bulk grain raw materials in the Animal Industry Business and sugar raw materials in the Sugar Business that are imported from abroad, domestic suppliers are prioritized for the supply of the remaining raw materials. In addition, it is clearly stated in all relevant bidding documents that new suppliers shall comply with the principles of fair trade, environmental protection regulations, Labor Standards Act, and Occupational Safety and Health Act. It is hoped that by requiring new suppliers, TSC and its suppliers can jointly fulfill corporate social responsibility and reach corporate sustainable development. Due to the complexity of human rights assessment mechanism, TSC currently screens the suppliers based on the self-assessment of the human rights compliance prescribed in the agreement by the suppliers. In 2019, the percentage of new supplier meeting the selection criteria reached 100%.
