Supply Chain Performance Achievement

The Supply Chain Performance Achievement (SCPA) is an annual program to recognize superior performance as measured in the Enterprise Supplier Performance Measurement (ESPM) system. Boeing generally announces SCPA recipients during the first quarter of the following year. The SCPA program replaced Boeing's Performance Excellence Award (BPEA) program.

SCPA Eligibility Criteria

  • Minimum of 10 monthly deliveries or a General Performance Assessment rating

SCPA Recognition
