The following requirements are specific to the following Gold Fields operations:
Gold Fields aims to support the host communities in which we operate by (wherever possible) incorporating local content as part of our supply chain.
In the West African region, the focus is on increasing the proportion of local content by procuring goods and services in accordance with Procurement Lists (published annually) by the Minerals Commission of Ghana, which at present target 29 discrete categories of spend.
At Gold Fields, we are committed to working with trusted organisations and extending our buying footprint to support small-to-medium suppliers in our host communities. Suppliers can contribute to the creation of shared value by employing local workers and/or engaging locally owned suppliers as part of their supply chains.
At Gold Fields, we are continually transforming our market engagement processes. This requires the adoption of innovative technology to support effective working relationships between Gold Fields and its suppliers.
At Gold Fields in West Africa, we use our SAP ERP system for transacting with suppliers.
