Systems & Processes
The decrease in supplier spend was mainly driven by a decrease in capital expenditure spending at our power generating plants and the conclusion of a number of business transformation projects in late FY19 and early FY20.
Supplier spend refers to spend on suppliers by AGL (including AGL Macquarie, AGL Loy Yang and AGL Torrens).
Data excludes settlements' vendor spend (i.e. energy trading related suppliers).
The Supplier Profile was re-baselined during FY19 due to the implementation of a new procurement system (PT3).
FY20 only data includes suppliers with whom AGL has transacted over the financial year.
FY20 data excludes AGL's Wholesale Markets division and AGL's ConnectNow business. The data includes Superannuation and Taxation (i.e. ATO) as vendors as well as network vendors used on electricity and gas transmission.
Where vendors have multiple records, these duplicate records have been excluded where possible.
Prior to FY20, suppliers that provided goods or services to both AGL Macquarie and AGL Loy Yang were included twice.
