FCA chooses the award recipients based on an evaluation of each company’s supplier scorecard from the year prior. The rating system evaluates supplier performance when it comes to quality, cost, delivery and warranty, along with input from FCA senior leadership. Foundational Principles winners are the creme of the crop as the winners represent companies who continuously demonstrate extraordinary partnership, transparency, collaboration, and integrity. On the other hand, the winners for innovation, diversity, and sustainability categories are often submitted by suppliers themselves and vetter by FCA senior leadership. Additionally, FCA also awarded 87 global production suppliers for their outstanding quality. In order to qualify, the supplier needed to have a North American manufacturing location with 100 percent warranty and incoming material quality scores. FCA holds a total of four annual supplier conferences across the world.
