Suppliers Hiring

The selection, quotation and hiring of suppliers are made based on our 'Code of Ethics and Conduct of the Supplier', respecting technical and other criteria of process such as quality, price, delivery time and vendor support service.

The suppliers selected for this phase have already registered and are certified to provide for some category at Vale. Request for information (RFIs), request for quotation (RFQ) and request for proposal (RFP) are made in this phase. This all happens through Vale Vendor Portal or by email.

After reading the quotation terms, the supplier must state his or her interest - or not - in participating in the process. It is at this moment that the supplier must access a tax rules registry environment to inform the tax exemptions associated with its tax treatment
