The Approved Supplier List AS Template contains information on suppliers that have demonstrated the capability of meeting the company’s quality requirements. The company may elect to maintain a supplier list in lieu of or as a complement to one of the industry standard aerospace supplier information systems. In addition to product/service identifiers, the AS1110-1 APPROVED SUPPLIER LIST should include, but not be limited to, the following information:
The Aerospace Approved Supplier List may be organized by supplier, product name, order number, and other key information. To be an approved supplier, the candidate must provide certain assurances of capability, depending on the nature and severity of the potential risk its product or service poses to the quality, safety, and reliability of the company’s products.
The Procurement Manager should evaluate suppliers based on performance capability and resources (i.e., financial status, sufficient facilities, capability of equipment, and capability/training of employees), ability to fulfill company requirements, and ability to deliver accurately, completely, and in a timely manner.
