Doing Business with General Dynamics
Here at General Dynamics Land Systems, we value the relationship with our supply base, so we encourage you to submit a Supplier Profile.
Thank you for your interest and cooperation.
When you reply to the buyer, be sure that your quote is accurate and that your proposal is submitted on time. Buyers consider price, delivery, quality, reliability, maintainability warranties, management capability, and importantly, past quality performance - not price alone.
Prompt reliable delivery is vital to the successful accomplishment of our programs which are usually burdened with limited lead times. Buyers soon grow weary of suppliers who cannot meet schedules.
ACCOMPLISHING THE TASK
Of primary importance is to comply with the specifications or instructions of the purchase order and technical data package. Notify the buyer promptly if you feel our instructions are not clear, or if you have not received any items agreed to have been furnished by us. Also notify the buyer promptly of any anticipated delays as work progresses.
Your next step is to ship so that the plant receives the items on the specified date in an undamaged condition.
Should the shipment not be to specification, it will be returned to the supplier for replacement at the supplier's expense, and the supplier's quality record will be noted. Rejections are costly to buyer and seller.
General Dynamics is on auto-pay, which means you will be paid when your material has been received and accepted. You will only have to invoice for non-extendable items such as weld samples, engineering charges, setup charges, control tests, etc.
