procurement (to see whether the supplier is capable of producing the equipment and material within the expected delivery schedule and also compare quoted price against other suppliers).
by quality engineer (to see if supplier is prepared to abide by the quality requirements, and whether the potential supplier has requested for any quality or certification exception or deviation that is acceptable; also look at sample project Quality Plan (QP) and Inspection and Test Plan (I T P) submitted by the potential supplier to verify if they are acceptable in principle.
The quality engineer plays an active role by performing a desk top review of supplier bid documents such as ISO & HSE certifications; do an NCR trend analysis on contractor previous packages; check ratio of quality personnel versus total personnel, etc.
The supplier proposal is also checked by the nominated package engineer by looking at the filled-in data sheet, sample drawings and whether any engineering Deviation or Concession requested that is acceptable.
