Supplying Goods and Services
RBS Citizens Financial Group, Inc. is part of the RBS Group, one of the world's largest financial institutions, so we play a significant role in the economies in which we trade. With a supply chain spend of over $1bn in the US, and totaling more than $8bn worldwide, our social and environmental responsibilities and our influence carry well beyond our own employees and workplaces.
We believe that the performance of our suppliers has a direct impact on the quality of products and services offered to our customers. As such, we select suppliers based on quality, service and value.
The purchasing and supply requirements of all our brands and businesses within the Group are undertaken by Sourcing & Vendor Management. Working with our internal business partners we identify, select, manage and develop the optimal supply base to ensure that the current and future purchasing needs of the Group are delivered. Our team deploys a professional approach to purchasing and utilizes eSourcing technology for RFI’s; RFP’s and online bid events. Corporate responsibility, including supplier diversity, regulatory and business continuity objectives are integral to our approach.
The Group purchases a broad range of goods and services for our varied business needs. This extends from outsourcing of business processes through to more routine items like the office supplies that we use every day. Specific goods include IT hardware and software, furniture and marketing material. Specific services include telecommunications, contractors, legal and professional services, HR services, credit and debt products, marketing, travel, logistics and facilities management.
