After-the-Fact Purchase Orders (AFPOs)

A key control for PG&E is having a purchase order in place for each good or service we purchase from your organization before any work begins.

We will be investigating and installing corrective actions for each instance where an after-the-fact purchase order has to be issued. Please register the AFPO activity in the application link below to report situations where you have already commenced work without a purchase order first being issued.

    Contractor Safety

    At PG&E, there is nothing more important than public, employee and contractor safety. In support of this commitment, PG&E has established an enterprise Contractor Safety Program. This program outlines the minimum requirements for managing and overseeing contractors and subcontractors (at any tier) that perform medium and high risk work activities on behalf of PG&E, on either PG&E or customer sites and assets. As a prime contractor or subcontractor, maintaining a pre-qualified status in PG&E's third-party administrator for contractor safety performance management system is a requirement for doing business with PG&E.

    For a list of PG&E registered and qualified contractors in ISNetworld, please see the links below:

    Wildfire Prevention

    Due to climate and environmental issues in the state of California, wildfire is a significant threat needing attention for prevention and mitigation. Therefore, PG&E has revised procedural standards to best support addressing this urgent situation.

    All suppliers working in the field are expected to adhere to these requirements taking responsibility for actions which could potentially cause wildfire. This includes awareness of wildfire risk in geographic areas where work is to be performed, properly outfitting vehicles and personnel with adequate training and tools; ensuring each individual is accountable for preventing and mitigating potential wildfire risk.
