Cricket Procurement - Our Vision and Mission
At Cricket, we understand how important and critical the acquisition of goods and services is to our business, which is focused on being a reliable, affordable wireless service, offering consumers and local businesses a flat rate unlimited service over the latest technology, high quality, all digital CDMA2000 1X and 1xEV-DO wireless network. As such, we believe in developing strong relationships with suppliers that will help us acquire high quality goods and services, at the optimal mix of product cost, quality and service delivery.
The Procurement organization will achieve this through working with the functional areas to understand their needs and through the provision of strategic sourcing, negotiation, risk-management and on-going supplier relationship management. The Procurement organization will ensure its techniques and processes remain at the cutting edge of procurement best practice.
Cricket is constantly looking for suppliers that can bring innovative products & services and add value to the Cricket organization. Specifically, we are looking for suppliers that:
- Have a core competency in the products or services provided
- Can adapt to our environment, including our business growth
- Have a proven performance record as a supplier
- Are financially sound
In addition, Cricket expects its suppliers to have a social and political commitment to basic principles of human rights and not to discriminate against employees in hiring practices or any other term or condition of work, on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, disability, age or political opinion.
We place substantial value upon incumbent and potential suppliers who consistently respect basic human rights and expect suppliers to fully adhere to the International Labor Standards defined by the Internal Labor Organization. More details on these International Labor Standards can be found here.
