Supplier Expectations

Guided by the ConocoPhillips Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, our organization has produced a Code of Conduct for Supplier Expectations. These principles provide clarity on 4 critical elements: Integrity, Labor and Human Rights, Health, Safety and Environment and Social Performance.

We are committed to our SPIRIT values of Safety, People, Integrity, Responsibility, Innovation and Teamwork. It is essential that our suppliers remain fully aligned with those values to ensure the highest standards of operating excellence. Our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct  forms the foundation of our compliance and ethics program and provides concrete guidance for employees, our suppliers, and others with whom we engage. Our contracts require that suppliers be guided by the principles and standards set forth in the ConocoPhillips Code and their own ethics and conduct policies. While we recognize that there are different legal and cultural environments in which our suppliers operate, we believe that the principles described in the ConocoPhillips Code are common throughout the world. We have developed this document to provide additional clarity to our suppliers regarding our expectations in this area.

We comply with applicable trade laws and regulations that govern the export of goods, software, technology and services around the world.

Payments & Invoices

Our Req-to-Pay (R2P) process automates and streamlines processes to improve operational efficiency and cost effectiveness. ConocoPhillips has the capability to receive invoices and invoice data through several methods. The default invoicing method for all suppliers is electronic, with suppliers using either business-to-business messages or our dedicated web portal, hosted by Actian. In some cases, we use an evaluated receipts settlement process that does not require an invoice.

Vendors have the ability to access the company’s Accounts Payable invoice, purchase order, and payment information at any time through our convenient Vendor Invoice Status  website. This site contains details on invoice status and payment options, remittance information and contact information for the Accounts Payable team.
