G4S UK - Our suppliers

Suppliers and sub-contractors are a critical part of what G4S UK & Ireland delivers to its customers and those in its care. As a result it is essential that G4S partners with the best companies and organisations across the UK & Ireland.

G4S spends approximately £300M a year with suppliers and sub-contractors, giving business to thousands of SMEs across the region.

The G4S UK and Ireland Procurement team strive to engage with suppliers who meet the high industry standards (technical, financial and ethical) as set out in their selection processes.

If you are interested in supplying G4S, you can find more information on our supplier code of conduct and our Standard Terms and Conditions on this site.

Our supplier database

G4S has invested in moving our UK businesses onto common ERP and e-Procurement systems and formed a new single Financial Shared Service Centre (FSSC).  

The purpose is to streamline our finance and procurement processes and ensure we operate to common policies and procedures across all our UK businesses. This should ensure we have cost effective and efficient means of transacting with all our suppliers to the benefit of both parties. We have implemented a new Supplier database, using the Ariba Commerce Cloud in order to centralise and verify our supplier via a secure self-service portal.  This ensures that the information that we hold about the organisations who supply us is accurate and complete. 

It aims to increase our awareness of our suppliers complete service offering and capability. Through this information G4S has the capability to undertake the necessary due diligence on existing and future suppliers.

Supplier diversity, equity & inclusion

At G4S we would like to learn more about diversely owned suppliers that have an interest in working with our business.

As an organisation, we are keen to help support businesses that are diversely owned as this helps us to support and build sustainable businesses in the communities we operate. Companies like your own can help us foster innovation, create flexibility and drive cost efficiencies throughout our supply chain.

More information about our supplier diversity programme can be found on our dedicated webpage.

By completing this register of interest form it will allow us to be able to reach out to you if we have any current or future requirements.

Prompt Payment Code Action Plan

G4S relies on hundreds of suppliers each year and knows the importance of paying all our suppliers promptly, particularly small and medium sized enterprises. We are committed to improving our payment timescales and have produced an action plan to work towards paying at least 95% of invoices within 60 days.

Here is a summary of this action plan that has been signed off by our Finance Director and is published as per the requirements of the Cabinet Office’s Procurement Policy Note (PPN 04/19).

In addition to the Supplier Code of Conduct, G4S asks suppliers to comply with our Human Rights Policy and Business Ethics Code.
