ISNetworld will review and verify your information to ensure compliance with our requirements. Through this review, it will identify and help you address any gaps that may exist. These services will be provided by ISNetworld for a nominal fee.
The specific requirements that you will be asked to provide to ISNetworld will include:
- Standard Supplier Questionnaire
- The standard questionnaire gathers your company's health, safety, security, environmental and insurance information.
- Health and Safety Programs
- Insurance Certificates
- General Liability

CITGO recognizes that we operate in a very complex and heavily regulated industry. This requires a great deal of preparation to insure that all standards and requirements are met. We recognize that some businesses will require additional time and training to meet these requirements, however, our belief is that you can meet these standards and requirements. Our commitment is to keep you, our employees and the communities in which we operate safe and prosperous. The bottom line is we want you to succeed and are committed to assisting you in the process.
Please note: registering with the CITGO Supplier database qualifies your company for consideration in the bidding process. It does not guarantee that your business will be awarded business with CITGO. To be awarded CITGO business, as with any supplier, minority- and woman-owned suppliers must meet CITGO standard qualification requirements, including technical, operational and safety standards.
In addition to our refining business, we are proud to offer our customers a wide range of quality products through nearly 6,500 independently owned retail locations across the country. All in-store merchandise and maintenance services are purchased directly by the Marketer or Dealer who owns the location. CITGO does not interact in the purchase and negotiation of these products or services for our retail outlets, nor do we provide lists of our retail outlets for this purpose. Some of our Marketers participate in the CITGO Buying Group, which is managed through Consolidated Buying Company. You may find further information at their Web site www.powertocompete.com.
