Phendula was awarded a contract by Rio-Tinto RMB to do Vendor Assessments on 200 Supplier’s SHEQ & TECH compliance. The Lead Assessor was Mr. Ntokozo Biyela supported by the Quality Assurance Specialist-Miss Silindile Mchunu and Project Admin Mr. Thanks Nkosi. The project went well except for minor, normal project issues which together with the Rio Tinto team were resolved. At the beginning of the project, the suppliers we not sure how to receive our Assessors but later they understood once the project sponsor intervened.
There were a lot of learnings by Phendula and the team as this was the 1st project of this kind and magnitude. Through teamwork, regular meetings and great project management skills and experience, the project was executed swiftly and Phendula got a heads up from the Rio Tinto steering committee.
