Purchase Order Terms and Conditions:

Exotic employs a standard set of Purchase Order Terms and Conditions for all Suppliers. Additional and specific requirements are documented and communicated, as necessary, through purchase orders.

Supplier Delivery and Quality Performance:

Quality and delivery performance are vital to the success of Exotic and its customers. Exotics’ suppliers are required to maintain 95% Quality and On Time Delivery over a rolling 12 month period. Ratings will be reported on a score card provided by Exotic monthly.  Quality ratings include compliance to all specifications, drawings and purchase order requirements, including complete paperwork and certifications. On-Time Delivery (%) ratings are measured against committed delivery dates on purchase orders. Exotic accepts shipments up to ten business days early.

Product verification may be delegated to suppliers that consistently demonstrate a high standard of quality. This delegation will be at the discretion of Exotic’s Quality Manager and is based on product complexity, quality performance and any other relevant factors. If a supplier has been approved for product verifications, a formal letter will be issued by Exotic Quality Assurance and purchase orders will note this approved delegation. Delegated suppliers must maintain a quality rating of 98% and a blended rating of at least 95% over a rolling 6 month period.

Supplier Returns:

In the rare case of supplied materials requiring return, Exotic expects to receive a Return Material Authorization (RMA) within five business days.

Supplier Quality Requirements:

All suppliers providing materials, parts, or processing services used in the manufacture of finished product are required to maintain compliance with Exotic’s current Quality Control Procurement Requirements (QCPR) notes.

All current and prospective suppliers of Exotic are required to complete and sign a quality evaluation form and our most current supplier survey. Suppliers are monitored for quality performance and must maintain minimum standards to retain approval status.

Suppliers must obtain and maintain full manufacturing and process approvals for the facility where products are manufactured, in accordance with Exotic’s or Exotic’s Customer’s quality system requirements. This is defined by Exotic purchase orders and applicable supporting drawings, specifications, and quality requirements.
