Buyer Services

Providing details of potential suppliers together with their qualifications and capabilities to
make shortlisting easy and efficient.

What is SEQual?

SEQual is designed for both buyers and suppliers in the oil and gas sector.

Suppliers register their company and capability information so it is readily available for buyers use in supplier selection.

Suppliers will be categorised using the Product Code list for ease of selection, and each supplier will have completed a dynamic questionnaire, relevant to their capabilities, which will be assessed by an inhouse Team.

For higher risk suppliers – whether brought about by the nature or location of where the work is carried out, there will be a need for on-site assessments to ensure they have suitable systems and processes in place to manage risk. Costs for delivery of these on-site assessments are covered by the scheme out of the fees charged to the Buyers for membership.

During the on-site assessment the implementation of a suppliers management systems are examined to ensure procedures are properly carried out.

SEQual holds in date copies of all relevant supplier qualifications and documentation, and buyers can add their own specific requirements for particular suppliers with whom they are engaging, providing a one stop supplier information and document store.

Costs

Buyer membership fees are paid annually in advance, and are calculated to ensure that SEQual itself operates on a not-for-profit basis. Fees are pro-rated for buyers joining part way through the calendar year.
