Pioneer FM are delighted to have achieved the JOSCAR Registration Mark.
JOSCAR (the Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register) is a collaborative tool used by the aerospace, defence, and security industry to act as a single repository for pre-qualification and compliance information. Using JOSCAR can determine if a supplier is “fit for business”.
The JOSCAR Registration Mark is valued by some of the largest purchasers in the defence community and indicates that your organisation has gone through the process required to demonstrate its commitment and credentials to the industry.
One of the key aims of JOSCAR is to ensure that the information that suppliers and third parties are asked to provide to their clients is proportionate to the types of goods or services being supplied. A dynamic two-stage process is used to ensure that the process is tailored, and therefore as efficient as possible.
Stage 1 collects basic information about a supplier or third party to produce a profile on their legal entity, financial status and the nature of goods and services being supplied. This information allows an inherent risk assessment to be performed to determine if Stage 2 is needed in order to collect more detailed information.
Stage 2 requires the completion of a more detailed questionnaire along with supporting evidence, such as policies and certificates. To make the process as efficient as possible, only questions relevant to the nature of goods and services indicated in Stage 1 are asked, and most of the questions have selectable answers rather than requiring lengthy written responses.
Pioneer FM CEO, MJ Pettit said the following about achieving the JOSCAR accreditation,
"This is a reflection of the excellent processes and systems that our team have put in place over the last 12 months. We are already working with a number of government agencies, whereby we provide a consistently high FM service, with employees that have been security cleared to the highest levels. This accreditation will help Pioneer FM to capitalise upon the contracts we already have and organically grow within our target sectors of aerospace, defence, and security."
