Evaluation and recognition criteria

The socio-economic contribution of each supplier to local development will be measured by the In-Country Value (ICV), which becomes part of the supplier selection and hiring criteria.

The Community Value Index (IVC) is calculated during the procurement process, based on figures proposed by the supplier, referring to each Vale contract and operation. In addition to the IVC methodology, the Partilhar Program also allows suppliers to undertake social investment initiatives through agreements in specific cases.  

Program results

Since it was launched in 2020, the Partilhar Program has achieved significant results, including the creation of more than 13,000 jobs in Minas Gerais, Pará, Espírito Santo, Maranhão, Rio de Janeiro and Mato Grosso do Sul. 

More than 200 contracts have been signed in line with the program’s methodology and more than R$20 million of voluntary social investment has been executed.

Supplier's Journey

The Partilhar Program brings novelties to the hiring process and to the journey of Vale's suppliers.

In addition to technical and commercial criteria, the Community Value Index (IVC) is now considered when selecting contractors. The higher a supplier’s IVC, the more competitive it may be in Vale’s procurement processes.

About the ICV

The IVC, Community Value Index, is based on four objective levers and was developed to measure the socio-economic contribution of suppliers in the communities where we operate.

All the data is analyzed by the supplier, for each procurement process and Vale operation, making it possible to identify the positive value generated by the supplier in each location.

Levers analyzed in the ICV:

Local Employment

Number of active jobs in the municipality/municipalities of influence of the operation/operations 

Local Spending

Total spending on purchases of any nature in the municipality/municipalities of influence of the operation/operations. 

Social Investment

Considers the total investments in voluntary social initiatives.

Salary Mass

It considers the sum of the gross annual remuneration of the employees employed by the supplier (total remuneration with labor charges foreseen by law and without benefits for the contract period).

Support Material

All suppliers participating in the Program must comply with current regulations.
