Procurement platform

Procurement - Procurement Platform Flowchart


All suppliers must register on our procurement platform, Ariba, before participating in our procurement activities (e.g. RFI, RFQ, RFP). Kindly make sure your information is up-to-date and always accurate in order for Cathay to efficiently consider you as a potential invitee.

With Ariba, suppliers will be able to:

  • Update company information (e.g. contact details)
  • Create company user and assign roles
  • Take part in procurement activities (e.g. RFI, RFQ, RFP)
  • Receive contract award letter

Suppliers who have business with Cathay must also register on the vendor master of our SAP system in order to align the procure-to-pay process. Therefore, prior to transacting, suppliers who are not registered on SAP will be requested to provide certain information about general trading data (e.g. address and contact details) and vendor bank details (e.g. Bank Key, IBAN code, SWIFT code, BIC, Bank Account Number). The bank industry standards and payment processor requirements must be strictly adopted for SAP vendor maintenance.

The general principle for vendor master in SAP is to have only one vendor (legal entity) per one SAP vendor code (business partner) ID.  One vendor should not have multiple SAP vendor IDs except scenarios limited by existing system design.
