Procurement - Operations
We are committed to operating our mining and processing facilities in the Province in a manner that is beneficial both for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador and for Vale. We believe that our success depends greatly on the development of effective, ongoing partnerships with people and businesses in the Province.
The operation of the mine, concentrator and processing plant will require a regular, reliable supply of goods and services. All potential suppliers in Newfoundland and Labrador that meet our commercial and technical requirements will be given full and fair opportunity to participate in the procurement process. Through our Impacts and Benefits Agreements with Innu Nation and Nunatsiavut Government, we have committed that Innu and Inuit businesses be given priority for procurement opportunities associated with the operation of the mine and concentrator at Voisey's Bay.
It makes good business sense to build supplier relationships with Newfoundland and Labrador businesses. It allows us to have suppliers who have the expertise and resources close to our operations. Thus, when we need them, they can respond quickly. It also brings us one step closer to our objective of ensuring that the potential benefits of Voisey's Bay development are felt throughout the Province.
