Supplier performance assessments

In order to continuously improve the quality and transparency of our relationships with our suppliers, we carry out periodic evaluations of their performance.

The Supplier Performance Index (IDF) is the methodology we use to evaluate the performance of our service providers. Find out more in Mobilization and Demobilization of Suppliers. 
On Time In Full (OTIF) is the indicator we use to measure the performance of deliveries by our suppliers of goods. It compares the quantities delivered and requested, as well as the delivery times. Click here to download our OTIF Guide for Suppliers.

We want to hear from our suppliers!

Use Vale's service channels to share your doubts, critics and suggestions.
