Procurement Specification Setting for Cable Manufacturers

Ensuring consistency of pricing, product quality and operational functionality early in the design and production process to help reduce potential financial impacts of using the incorrect specification.

Unsheathed power cabling


We help ensure product quality, operational functionality, pricing consistency, and product compliance in order to reduce the financial impact of the wrong specification further down the line. The procurement specification is developed based on utility needs, manufacturer type and qualification approvals. We provide a detailed description of the cable specification and acceptable standards to cable manufacturers looking to satisfy utility requirements.


We provide a clear, objective way to help ensure cable manufacturers meet the specific product requirement of the utility, which will result in better cable sourcing.
