  • Anti-bribery and corruption rules.

If you do not have policies in place that show your company takes these issues seriously, you can download templates from:

N.B. You should ensure that all your suppliers also have similar policies in place and that they follow these policies. Please make these conditions of your supplier onboarding process.


Kopiki Procurement Platform

Kopiki is a service which matches Buyers with Suppliers; cost effectively and efficiently.

How it works:

  • The Buyer specifies the item they are looking for out of Kopiki's database of 10,000.
  • They then open a Marketplace where Buyers and Suppliers interact anonymously.
  • Once a Marketplace is open, new suppliers are invited to join.
  • If the Marketplace is right for you, then you can join.
  • You can start building a relationship with the Buyer.
  • When ready the Buyer will select Suppliers, they wish to contact.
  • Kopiki does not get involved in the transaction, they just introduce Buyers and Suppliers.

Pricing:

After a free trial period, for £199+ VAT per month you get unlimited access to all the MarketPlaces opened by all Buyers.

To register as a Supplier just click here.
