The Saskatchewan Industrial and Mining Suppliers Association (SIMSA) has prepared this set of “Gold Standard Debriefing Guidelines” for SaskPower, outlining ways the corporation could better meet the needs of SIMSA members as well as all other suppliers, in the area of Supplier Development. Specifically, a debriefing is an opportunity for non-selected suppliers to learn what they have done well and what they can do better.
To develop this document, SIMSA polled its members with a set of questions, designed to develop useful ideas and suggested approaches, that could be shared with SaskPower. We then distilled the responses into a format that allows us to clearly articulate a set of guidelines and to establish the basis for ongoing discussions with SaskPower. The resulting draft-document was then approved by our Board, which resulted in this set of guidelines.
It should be noted that, in general, the guidelines may not represent the individual or specific views of each SIMSA member, but rather the broader collective views. However, a few of the items are included for discussion purposes, even though they were only those of a limited segment of our membership.
