A quality agreement is an essential part of a supplier qualification program, but it does not replace the supplier`s qualification processes (including audits when needed) or the supplier`s understanding of its processes and skills. A quality agreement must not include trade or liability conditions that should be dealt with exclusively in a supply contract. Conversely, a delivery contract explains how the supplier promises to provide all goods or services reported over a period of time and at what cost. It also includes the buyer`s obligations as to when and how the goods are purchased. The delivery agreement helps to facilitate the management of companies working together, eliminates ambiguities and establishes the framework for ordering and delivering goods and services. “Each manufacturer must define and maintain requirements, including quality requirements that must be met by suppliers, contractors and consultants.
