Industrial Contractors, Inc. won the Basic Electric Power Cooperative Preferred Supplier Award for their outstanding performance in 2014. The Preferred Supplier Award is great news for ICI as Basin Electric represents more than 50% of their annual business volume.

Basin Electric Power Cooperative and Dakota Gasification Company completed an annual, year-end performance evaluation for 70 key suppliers as part of their Supplier Quality Assurance Process. The participating suppliers and evaluators for each specific supplier were determined based on the input of all Basin Electric Power Cooperative / Dakota Gasification Company facilities.

The Supplier Quality Assurance Process classifies the evaluated suppliers as Preferred, Quality, or Conditional based on the supplier's overall score.

According to Jeff Hammes, President / CEO of ICI, this is the seventh Preferred Supplier Award ICI has received and what makes it so significant, is the fact that ICI is graded by the Basin Electric Power Cooperative staff that they work for. There are several people who have input at each of the three sites where ICI has maintenance contracts; Antelope Valley Station, Beulah, ND; Leland Olds Station, Stanton, ND and the Great Plains Coal Gasification Plant, Beulah, ND. Annually, Basin Electric Power Cooperative grades approximately 70 to 90 vendors and only 10 or 12 are awarded Preferred Supplier status. It is particularly difficult for contractors to make it as they are exposed to so many people versus other types of vendors who may only interface with one or two people.
