ABSTRACT
The study sought to determine the significant relationship of accreditation characteristics
and level of performance of the network contractors of the Philippine Long Distance
Telephone Company. Accreditation characteristics including years of accreditation, years
of business operation, net worth, paid-up capitalization and D&B credit rating were
gathered from the available records from the Supplier Relationship Management Office
of PLDT. The level of performance considered was the average of 2013, 2014, and 2015
performance rating of network contractors rated by the engineering group of PLDT.
Purposive sampling method was used to select the 42 participants of the study. They were
chosen based on availability of documents and their D&B ratings from 2013-2015.
Pearson-r correlation was used to test the hypothesis stating that there was a relationship
between PLDT’s network contractor characteristics and their level of performance.
Findings revealed that there is a significant relationship between the accreditation
characteristics of network contractors and their years of accreditation, years of operation,
net worth, paid-up capitalization, D&B credit rating and their level of performance. The
researcher recommends that the findings of the study be used by PLDT to improve the
accreditation process of its network contractors and that similar studies be conducted for
future research considering other variables that were not included in this study.
Keywords: accreditation characteristics, credit rating, level of performance
