Supplier Management Policies and Processes

Sustainable Supplier Management Policy and Current Performance

Gamania has a supplier management policy to work with suppliers on the promotion of sustainable development and jointly reduce environmental impacts. It also requires suppliers to sign a ""Supplier Corporate Social Responsibility Statement"" when signing a contract to ensure that all partners comply with the relevant environmental, labor, and human rights norms.

In the procurement management measures, each year the Administration and Procurement Department selects evaluation targets based on the number of transactions, transaction volume, and importance. The procurement unit shall conduct a review based on the items listed in the supplier evaluation form, including quality, timeliness, and customer complaint handling, and conduct reviews in accordance with the supplier evaluation rules and regulations. Those who have been evaluated as providing abnormal cooperation but continue to cooperate must be prioritized as evaluation objects.

The supplier evaluation results shall be confirmed by the supervisor of the responsible unit, signed and sealed, and used by the procurement personnel as the basis for future supplier selection.

Scoring rules:

The procurement personnel shall investigate the supplier’s past cooperation records or market evaluation (relevant investigation and implementation methods shall be handled in accordance with the procurement management measures and relevant supplier management regulations of the Group, and the evaluation shall be recorded in the supplier evaluation form as the basis for subsequent annual supplier evaluations.

Supplier evaluation items, including quality, timeliness and scoring criteria, must be clearly recorded in the evaluation form, and the evaluation results shall be determined by the department head. The rules for point addition/deduction are listed below.

Point deduction rules:

Suppliers with controversies or disputes in cooperation shall be reported and managed in accordance with the regulations and point deduction shall apply.

Suppliers who conceal, disclose, or violate the terms and conditions without actually fulfilling the agreement shall be reported for management and point deductions shall apply.

  1. For suppliers who are meritorious in assisting the Company's business and actively cooperate, point additions shall apply according to the regulations.
  2. For suppliers who substantially provide or share results to improve the Company's quality or services, point additions shall apply according to the regulations.

Supplier management rules:

  1. If a supplier has a violation of the ethical operation procedures or supplier management regulations of Gamania, the abnormal status shall be marked as a matter of attention for each unit when trading. If it is necessary to conduct transactions with the supplier, it is necessary to report to the responsible supervisor and obtain consent before proceeding.
  2. Corresponding control mechanisms shall be implemented for suppliers who are on the control list or have evaluation results below the standard.
  3. The supplier evaluation results will be used by procurement personnel as part of the supplier judgment criteria for future cooperation.
  4. The regional suppliers of the Group shall be managed in accordance with the regional supplier evaluation mechanism established by the parent company.
  5. The valuation standards shall be raised for suppliers of major or long-term procurement cases for services and quality assurance.

Exit rules:

  1. For suppliers whose quality has been repeatedly abnormal and caused losses to the Company but do not intend to improve, or who are listed as suppliers suspended/terminated from trading, the Company shall stop dealing with them. If it is necessary to maintain trading due to special factors, it is required to obtain the consent of the responsible supervisor. If the supplier is the only or irreplaceable supplier, it is necessary to pay more attention to its improvement and actively seek other suppliers.
  2. When the evaluation result is lower than the standard or meets the supplier control regulations (such as the parent company's supplier management policy and other relevant management regulations), it is necessary to notify the relevant units for countermeasures and implementation of the corresponding control mechanism.

The sampling risk assessments for suppliers have been conducted. In 2023, a total of 12 suppliers underwent the risk assessments, accounting for 10.26% of all suppliers.
