Time Warner's purchasing policies are based on standard business practices. Suppliers are chosen first and foremost for their ability to meet the needs of our divisions and departments. Within each department, individual buyers and decision-makers have total control of evaluating and selecting suppliers to service their needs. All suppliers must meet the following minimum criteria:
- Quality products and services at all times
- On-time delivery of their products and services
- Competitive prices for their products and services
Our Supplier Diversity Program expands our supplier base and increases competition among vendors, which leads to lower prices and higher quality. We encourage our buyers to take advantage of the Supplier Diversity Program and to include diverse suppliers as a key part of their overall strategic sourcing process.
