HP's four-phase supplier management system (introduction, assessment, validation and improvement, capability building) provides an overarching framework for suppliers to progress through our supply chain SER program. We focus our resources according to risks posed by supplier activities. The system aims to improve long-term SER performance by building suppliers' capabilities. Since our SER program began, all of our key production suppliers have completed the introduction and assessment stages.
