O&G Companies: Oil and Gas Companies

PD: Purchasing Department

PMT: Project Management Team

RSA: Responsible Standardization Agent

RUS: Responsible Unit Supervisor

RVL: Regulated Vendor Listing

SCC: Standards Committee Chairman

SME: Subject Matter Expert

Manufacturer Tier: a classification system for manufacturers according to their


expected experience in manufacturing, supplying and supporting the commodity.
The system is used to predict the level of details needed for the technical evaluation to
minimize unexpected risks. Tier I represents the highest potential manufacturers and
Tier III represents the lowest potential manufacturers.

4 Responsibilities

4.1 Subject Matter Expert (SME)

It is the responsibility of the SME to perform all the necessary tasks to complete
the commodity technical evaluation. This includes:
 Assigning the manufacturer tier (Appendix A),
 Gathering data, conducting meetings and facility surveys as required by the
evaluation,
 Coordinating field trials (as needed),
 Finalizing the evaluation report (Appendix B),
 Forwarding the completed evaluation report to the RSA for further RVL
processing.

4.2 Responsible Standardization Agent (RSA)

It is the responsibility of the RSA to verify completeness and objectivity of the


technical evaluation. The RSA is responsible to review and concur with the
SME if additional evaluation requirements are needed. The RSA is responsible
to review the technical evaluation and concur with the SME requests to waive
any evaluation requirement specified in this procedure. The RSA is responsible
for coordinating with Purchasing Department (PD) and the SME for the need
and urgency for the evaluation.

4.2 Standards Committee Chairman (SCC)

It is the responsibility of the SCC to review the technical evaluation to ensure


streamlining with Saudi Aramco P&CSD strategic vision. The SCC is
responsible to review and concur with accepting product deviation(s) from any
of the technical requirements specified in SAESs or SAMSSs.

4.4 Responsible Unit Supervisor (RUS)

It is the responsibility of the RUS to assign the SME, RSA and the SCC for
product technical evaluation. The RUS is responsible to ensure that the three
roles are performed by three different individuals.
Commentary Note:

The RUS may assign the backup RSA to replace the RSA and/or the Standards
Committee Vice Chairman to replace the SCC to meet the above requirement.

5 Instructions

5.1 Commodity evaluation, by SME, shall not commence without RSA concurrence.
The RSA shall coordinate with Purchasing Department (PD), Inspection
Departement (ID), Project Management Team (PMT) and proponents for the
need, urgency and duration of the technical evaluation.
Exception:

The SME can initiate commodity evaluation given a Material Sourcing Assistance
Request, for the subject evaluation, is submitted to and approved by Strategic
Sourcing of Purchasing Department.

5.2 Upon receiving the request to conduct the technical evaluation from the RSA,
the SME shall assign a manufacturer tier using the guidelines outlined in
Appendix A.

5.3 Using the manufacturer tier and commodity number (9COM number specified in
the respective Saudi Aramco standards such as:

Manufacturers of Trays and Packing

The SME shall specify the requirements to complete the technical evaluation in
accordance with paragraph 6 of this document.
Exception:

With the proper technical justifications and given the RSA and the SCC approval,
the SME can modify, waive or add to the evaluation requirements specified in
paragraph 6.

5.4 Any deviation to the evaluation requirements in paragraph 6 shall be included in


the technical report in Appendix B and shall be approved by the RSA and the
SCC.

5.5 For all other commdoties, that are not listed in paragraph 6, the RSA is
responsible for arranging with the SME and the SCC to specify all evaluation
requirements.

5.6 Upon gathering all evaluation requirements, the SME shall conduct the technical
evaluation and record the results in the evalution report in Appendix B.

5.7 The SME shall forward the completed technical evaluation form, with all the
signatures, to the RSA for further RVL processing.

5.8 The RSA shall forward the signed technical evaluation form to Purchasing
Department and Vendor Inspection. The RSA shall attach the technical
evaluation form to the manufacturer evaluation SAP Workflow.

5.9 One time technical approval requrests may be entertained provided that:
a) the installation is a replacement-in-kind and the request is endoressed by the
proponent, or
b) the technology(s), from existing Saudi Aramco approved manufacturers,
can not handle the application.

coordinated with the RSA for proper 9COM assignment.

5.12 As part of imporving local manufacturing content, special considerations may be


given to local manufacturing facilities provided that product quality and
performance are not compromised. The RSA and the SME shall evaluate such
considerations.
