Philip Morris values its relationships with suppliers, so we are constantly looking at ways to automate and streamline our financial processes in order to ensure that expenditures are properly authorized and recorded and, as a result, that our invoices are processed on time.

Here are details of the supplier platform and processes we use to manage our projects.

You can also find some key invoicing requirements to ensure the completeness of your invoices. This will help achieve a smooth and timely payment process.


Supplier e-Procurement platforms and applications

SCOUT (Supplier sourcing platform)

PMI uses the SCOUT sourcing platform to plan, manage and execute sourcing projects through an easy-to-use interface. It allows our suppliers to easily and quickly submit their bid. In case of questions, the message center helps them to get answers in real time. Suppliers should contact SCOUT directly with any questions about or issues with the platform.
