Welcome to Bechtel's Supplier and Contractor Portal
This is a secure site for registering your company and conducting eBusiness with
Bechtel and its projects.
Suppliers and subcontractors are critical members of our procurement and contracting
functions, supporting a diverse global business portfolio, encompassing power, transportation,
communications, mining, oil and gas, chemicals, and U.S. government services.
If you supply materials or provide services that we are likely to purchase (see
What We Purchase), we invite you to register your company. After registering,
it is important that you update your information periodically to keep us current
with your company’s capabilities. The more complete, targeted, and current your
registration information, the more visible your company will be to our projects
around the world.
Once you have registered your company, you will also be able to learn more about Bechtel’s supply-chain requirements,
review specific project opportunities, and submit qualification information about
your company into our worldwide database of suppliers and subcontractors. Additionally,
if you have an active contract with a Bechtel or Bantrel project, you can monitor
shipments and deliveries.
Our suppliers and subcontractors are critical members of our contracting and procurement
functions in support of the company’s diverse business portfolio, encompassing power,
transportation, communications, mining, oil and gas, chemicals, and government services.
Our acquisition strategy is to use the best technologies, international competition,
world-class products and services, and local content to provide an optimized supply
chain base for each project and client. We depend on you, the supplier, for expert
knowledge, quality, and integrity to consistently bring to our projects the best
solutions. Together we create a robust global organization of talented people who
can capitalize on opportunities and continually offer increasing value to our customers
We work with qualified suppliers who commit to safely delivering quality goods and
services―on time and within budget. We are committed to the highest safety and ethical
standards in the industry and expect the same dedication from our supplier and subcontractor
organizations. We seek suppliers and subcontractors who understand their obligations
and work with us to meet our customers’ expectations.
It is our responsibility to fully comply with U.S. export and import control regulations,
and we request the full support of our subcontractors and suppliers. Compliance
with U.S. export and import laws is critical to ensuring that all parties maintain
export and import privileges and sustain their ability to engage the global marketplace.
Additionally, we require complete and strict adherence from our suppliers/subcontractors
with the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) regulations on corruption and counterfeiting.
The Procurement Organization
We are a global organization that conducts procurement operations in numerous countries.
Our staff is segmented into experienced specialists for contracting, procuring,
and materials management. Most people are dedicated to direct support of our projects,
while others play a more indirect role by providing functional services to our projects.
Each project has its own commercial team responsible for obtaining the correct materials
and services; validating capabilities of prospective suppliers; managing the bid
cycle; ensuring that a fair evaluation of each responsive bidder is conducted prior
to award; and monitoring safety, quality, and schedule. This team consists of several
specific disciplines, including Subcontracts, Purchasing, Expediting, Supplier Quality,
Traffic and Logistics, and jobsite Inventory and Material Control.
Frequent communication and regular visits to our suppliers’ facilities is common
practice. It reinforces our proactive approach to resolve potential issues, which
helps suppliers deliver consistent value to the customer in a timely manner. To
verify compliance with purchase order requirements and specifications, supplier
quality surveillance is performed in accordance with approved quality surveillance
plans. Sound knowledge of industry codes and standards is applied so that any identify
nonconforming quality and manufacturing issues are identified before they have a
chance to affect the project.
