Global Procurement

Sourcing. Securing. Saving.

MetLife's Global Procurement is all about two things: risk and value.

The organization aims to secure the best value and manage the risk associated with our suppliers. We assist the MetLife organization in securing products and services in more than 23 countries, within the four major regions. (Asia, EMEA, LatAm and the United States)

Procurement Operations supports our organization through Procurement Systems which oversees our Global Procurement Platform, our integrated and automated solution of the full spend process from plan to pay, the Contract Management Group, Metrics & Reporting, our Third-Party Risk Management program and our award-winning Supplier Inclusion and Development program.

Through MetLife's Third-Party Risk Management program, third parties are risk-rated, evaluated and managed. This ensures all sensitive MetLife and customer information is protected, and the value of each contract is realized.

As a valued third party to MetLife, we encourage your active participation and prompt responses to requests to help drive these MetLife processes. Your participation helps to build and grow the relationship between MetLife and your organization.
