The TAG FLAG Vendor Profiling program addresses a multitude of important facets of day to day business operations and supports the ISO20400 Sustainable Procurement guidelines.
It is designed to provide TAG members with an easily accessible library of information relating to the operating proceedures and impacts or risks associated with each TAG supplier.
There are two key parts to the TAG FLAG survey - the Company Profiling component and the Product Impact component which both address multifaceted areas of business such as:
- human rights and labour practices
- supply chain protocols
- resource management policies
- human, economic and environmental risks
- manufacturing protocols
- production and transportation policies
- overall corporate governance and impact responsibility
- waste management
Survey answers are rated against worldwide best practice. Data collected from completed surveys is used to compile profiling reports associated with each individual company and their products (if relevant).
The profiling reports are designed to assist TAG members to improve their own good governance and mitigate operational and reputational risks by understanding the operating practices of the business partners they engage with. Comparison charts within the program provide TAG members with a snapshot of how competing companies and products rate against each other.
Survey forms are customisable for specific contract types and can be tailored to address key components of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The TAG FLAG profiling tool is also suitable for TAG members to track and measure their own organisation's performances and ratings.
Once completed, suppliers can export their report or reassess their survey data to update their ratings if existing company protocols are improved or changed.
All new TAG suppliers are required to complete the survey and is included as a condition of contract tendering. Exisitng TAG suppliers are required to review and update their surveys annually.
