By

1994|Case No.P14

Implementation of Levi Strauss & Co.’s (LS&CO.’s) Terms of Engagement component of its Global Sourcing Guidelines required the development of procedures and standards for
evaluating contractor compliance.2 It also meant that inspections and audits of each of its contractors’ facilities had to be conducted and that LS&CO.’s personnel had to be trained
to conduct the audits. LS&CO. developed a standard audit form, but the responsibility for the audits was delegated to each of the organizations in its global sourcing system.
