What we do

Providing sourcing, strategy, and value

BD Global Procurement strives to continuously deliver the highest sustained value for our company by leveraging our full competitive supply base using highly effective and efficient systems and processes.

BD products and businesses require diverse materials, supplies and services. To select the right supply strategy and supplier base for each need while accommodating continual global and industry changes, BD Global Procurement must diligently analyze internal and external dynamics—from risk to pricing to innovation.

Our associates lead cross-functional sourcing teams to review businesses' needs, for each category of purchase, against these critical factors:

Implementation of sourcing includes rigorous testing and validation protocols where required by government regulations, and we enable significant annual savings through continuous improvements to maximize the value from the supply base.

BD Global Procurement continuously improves the reliability, quality, and cost effectiveness of our procured products and services. We closely collaborate with strategic and preferred suppliers to develop continuous improvement projects—ranging from simple lean and waste reduction measures, to full Six Sigma programs—to increase value, savings, and competitive advantage.

Expectations for Suppliers

The BD Expectations for Suppliers document outlines specific standards of social responsibility, environmental stewardship, ethical practices, and governance that suppliers need to meet. This document is our version of a supplier code of conduct, and we expect all suppliers to thoroughly review this document and act within its guidelines.

Invoicing

Accurate supplier information enables on-time payments. BD suppliers can manage their account information in the BD Supplier Onboarding Portal, or by contacting their BD Sourcing / Procurement representative.
