Supplier requirements

Supplier notification required when transferring work to a new location.  Advise C.O.M. immediately if shipment will be delayed for any reason, of nonconforming product, or for approval of nonconforming product disposition. Supplier notification required of changes in product and/or process changes of the suppliers, changes of manufacturing facility location and where required, obtains organization approval. Supplier required to flow down to all lower tiers of the supply chain the applicable requirements including customer requirements.

A. Unauthorized Material Substitution (General)
Unauthorized material substitutions are not permitted on Buyer’s Goods. Unauthorized material substitution includes any deviation from Central Ozark Machine purchase order. Engineering definition includes Buyer design drawing and applicable specifications, product specification, form, size, shape, chemistry, melt method, origin, temper/condition, product testing or surface finish. Alternate materials specified in the Central Ozark Machine purchase order do not constitute unauthorized material substitution.
Contact Buyer’s Authorized Procurement Representative for details regarding deviations to authorized materials. Seller agrees and understands that such deviations only apply to this purchase contract, and only as indicated in the Buyer’s authorized document.

B. Metallic Materials (Specific)
Temper or Condition Conversion - Unless specifically authorized by the Central Ozark Machine, conversion of a raw material (i.e. heat treat to change the temper or condition of the material) constitutes material substitution of the condition provided by the manufacturer.
Metallic Raw Materials – Buyer’s purchase order may refer to obsolete or superseded specifications covering several forms, thicknesses, widths, etc. of the alloy or alloys. The required characteristics of these materials are defined not only by the objective test standards of the specification, but by the processes/methods by which this final form is achieved. These requirements are often captured in the definitions of the required material forms, and may not be explicitly called out in the detailed requirements. The raw material certification results from both the process used to make it and the tests to verify basic properties.
Seller shall ensure that metallic materials covered by current or obsolete/superseded specifications are produced using the standard industry practices designed strictly for the production of stock to the specified thickness, diameter, width or cross sectional area, achieved by thermo-mechanical processing or casting process. Chemical, electrochemical and mechanical methods used for the removal of surface scale or contamination,
or the production of the required surface finish, in accordance with the material specification are acceptable. Raw material must not be re-certified with respect to thickness, diameter, width or cross sectional area or product form. Machining or cutting of thicker product or other product forms shall not be supplied in lieu of specified product unless specifically authorized by Buyer. Raw material certifications for material or parts shall reflect the form and size of the raw material as originally manufactured by the raw material producer.

C. Specification Supersession:
For government specifications and standards canceled after June 1994, Seller and subcontractors at all tiers shall use the last active revision of the canceled specification and standard until an acceptable replacement is included in the requirements of this Contract. Contact the Buyer’s Authorized Procurement Representative in the event of any inconsistency in applicable specification or standard.

D. Reports (Full Pedigree from melt to final product) - Raw material certifications shall show clear traceability to the manufacturer(s) of the raw material including ingot source, all thermo-mechanical processing (i.e. forging, rolling, drawing, etc), heat treatment, chemical processing and inspections as required by applicable raw material specification requirements.

E. Chain of Custody (Disguising intermediate ownership) – Suppliers shall not disguise the pedigree of material or chain of ownership by removal of a previous supplier’s name, nomenclature or identification.

F. The substance of this Article shall be flowed in all subcontracts at every tier.
