The flow below presents the stages of the relationship between EDP and the supplier. Processes may vary according to the type and criticality of each supplier. The relationship steps are following below.
Registration (and registration update), Prospecting and Qualification of Suppliers

For this reason, it is important that the supplier keeps his data always updated. The registration stage is mandatory for approving contracts and closing contracts, once registered, your company will be able to supply any company of the EDP Brasil Group.
For highly complex processes and values, we can perform financial and technical qualification of suppliers, so we request that at the time of registration insert the most recent financial statements.

In this step, requests for information (RFIs), price quotes (RFQs) and requests for proposals (RFPs) are sent through the SINERGIE Portal. It is in this environment that suppliers must clarify doubts and submit their proposals is also the time for companies to reiterate that they agree with the contractual requirements.
