The pilot project aims to enable SMEs to ensure their effective and sustainable participation in the production and supply chain of goods and services to mega projects.
The supplier certification process covers topics ranging from the need to foster supplier relationship to the generation of a supplier number allowing the future identification of the supplier in the company’s database.
Currently, about 90% of the companies that provide services to Vale are registered suppliers in Mozambique – mainly local companies and regional suppliers who have established local partnerships.
The Vale programme is part of the PRONACER project, which aims to help national companies qualify by preparing them for certification and reimbursing costs for eligible companies.
The process is expected to cover around 200 SMEs, which could represent an increase of about 400% of certified companies in Mozambique.
According to CTA President Agostinho Vuma, PRONACER is an important contribution to the private sector’s credibility and competitiveness, helping products and services provided by domestic companies meet the requirements needed to participate in mega-project business opportunities.
Vale has also been investing in suppliers through initiatives such as training, visits, and events known as “Vale Days”, which help suppliers learn about mine production processes, the better to align their services with business needs.Source: Vale / Press Release
