Frequently Asked Questions
Supplier registration is the first step required to formally introduce your firm to our procurement staff. The system does not generate an automated response once you have registered, and you are responsible for remembering your username and password. Password resets are available through the help desk. You should update your profile as necessary with new information. We suggest you review and update your profile at least once annually.
AbbVie’s review cycles for commodities and services are developed well in advance and are contingent upon preferred supplier networks and contract expiration dates. Actively renewing your registration in our portal over time ensures your information is up to date and available when opportunities arrive. For example, if a network is in place in the area of printing, the area may not be reopened for a period of 24 to 36 months.
AbbVie publishes an outreach calendar at the beginning of each year, and AbbVie procurement representatives can share details about where AbbVie will exhibit. If you have questions regarding a particular event and AbbVie’s participation, contact us at [email protected].
AbbVie hosts numerous diverse supplier development activities and selects prospective suppliers with the greatest potential for business identified through our various outreach activities.
Meetings with incumbent and prospective suppliers are at the sole discretion of the category managers or directors for a particular commodity area or service offering. When there is no existing opportunity, it may not be beneficial for both sides to meet.
