Investing in our suppliers and contractors helps foster local economic development and meet our business needs around the world.
Globally, Chevron has a commitment to build local supplier capacity and reflect diversity in its supplier base. We achieve this through our Supplier Diversity Program and Supply Chain Management Policy.
Working With Our Suppliers to Promote Safety
Chevron believes work on each of its projects must be done safely or not at all. To eliminate health, environment and safety incidents and injuries, we use a number of standardized work safety processes. See how our Contractor, Health, Environment and Safety Management process helps prevents incidents throughout our European operations.
Chevron is committed to providing full, fair and reasonable opportunity for U.K. industry to supply goods and services, and works hard to ensure that opportunities for local suppliers and contractors are realised.
With all our projects, we always consider the use of U.K. labour, services and materials when price, quality, delivery and service are equal to or better than other alternatives. We work constructively with U.K. industry to provide information and facilitate briefings as appropriate to ensure local suppliers and contractors are fully aware of potential opportunities.
In 2015, Chevron received the Award of Excellence for adhering to the Oil & Gas Supply Chain Code of Practice for the U.K. Continental Shelf. The award is given for achieving Gold Level compliance –the highest possible– for three consecutive years. It is based on supplier ratings of Chevron’s performance and efficiency.

Becoming a Supplier
In the U.K., Chevron is committed to using Achilles First Point Assessment (FPAL), the industry’s supply chain database, to identify, assist with pre-qualification and assess suppliers for tender opportunities. In support of the Oil & Gas UK Supply Chain Code of Practice, we provide a list of future contracting and supply opportunities through an annual Pilot Forward Workplan submission, which is hosted through FPAL.
Chevron is a strong advocate of the FPAL verification process and we encourage all current and prospective suppliers to ensure they are accurately and comprehensively registered on the FPAL database. Further details and assistance with this process can be found here.
Excellent contractor safety is paramount to working with Chevron. Our Contractor Health, Environment and Safety Management (CHESM) work process helps to enhance the safety performance of third-party service suppliers and their subcontractors through conformance to Operational Excellence. This process helps to ensure that Chevron works with the best contractors and service providers in the industry.
