Indirect suppliers are vendors that supply services and non-resale products critical
to Winn-Dixie’s goal of making the shopping experience personable, fun and fresh
for our customers. We conduct a thorough sourcing process to select business partners
that will best support each of our indirect supplier categories. If you would like
to be considered as an indirect supplier for Winn-Dixie, you’ll need to register
for our indirect supplier sourcing process. Please note that this process is separate
from our direct supplier sourcing process.

It’s Easy to Register as an Indirect Supplier
We use the Ariba E-Sourcing platform to register indirect suppliers. Click here to register.
Your company will be directed to the Ariba commerce site to create a username and
password in order to access the Ariba commerce site in the future. After completing
the username and password information, your company will be required to fill out
the company profile questionnaire. Once you complete your registration, your information
will be stored with Winn-Dixie and the appropriate Sourcing Manager will be notified.

What to Expect Next
After your company registers in Ariba and is approved, you will receive an email
to confirm that you have been approved as a new vendor. The next time Winn-Dixie
sources a category that your company supports, your company may be notified and
invited to participate. Selection will be based on how closely your services match
up with our needs.
Advantages of the Ariba E-Sourcing Platform
Ariba facilitates Winn-Dixie’s registration and approval process and allows us to
conduct sourcing events in a centralized place. We can compare registered suppliers
based on the categories they support and conduct RFXs as needed. The biggest benefit
is better communication throughout the sourcing process.
