Supplier Privacy Standard
In the United States, Lilly follows the federal Open Payments law (also referred to as the Sunshine Act) along with state and local laws. Outside the United States, in addition to adhering to local and national legislated requirements for countries in which we operate, Lilly participates in voluntary disclosure codes led by local trade associations. Lilly discloses direct and indirect payments or transfers of value to healthcare professionals for advising/speaking services, travel and lodging, research, educational items, and/or food and beverages as required. Lilly also discloses direct and indirect payments or transfers of value to U.S. teaching hospitals.
To the extent applicable, you may be required to submit detailed information about direct or indirect payments/transfers of value provided to healthcare professionals or teaching hospitals under this Supplier agreement with Lilly. If so, please use the Global Transparency Reportable Data Capture Template to document and submit applicable details about payments/transfers of value so Lilly can fulfill our transparency reporting obligations. The template should be submitted to Lilly no later than thirty (30) days following the end of each month. If you have questions about whether this Agreement will result in a reportable transaction, reach out to the Global Transparency mailbox at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Contingent Worker Onboarding at Lilly
Note: Pre-onboarding tasks such as Background Checks and drug screening requirements are determined by country, local process and entitlements assigned by the hiring manager. Background check in step 3 will not always be applicable. For more information contact the contingent Worker team by submitting a request on iSight.
The supplier is expected to comply with all Lilly rules, procedures, standards and requirements as described in executed contracts, service level agreements and training sessions. Failure to comply with such requirements may result in an unfavorable impact for Lilly (business disruptions, delays in project deliverables, safety concerns) and negative consequences for the supplier (probation and/or termination of services). Suppliers are to maintain an open line of communication with their Lilly contact and/or the assigned contingent worker to ensure timely information sharing and distribution to all affected parties.
Suppliers have two main responsibilities in Beeline:
- Onboard all contingent workers who require unescorted site access and/or IT systems access, and maintain any worker data changes as required
- Where applicable, ensure that their employees and subcontractors meet and pass minimum criminal background check standards and a drug screen prior to receiving an unescorted access and/or Lilly system access.
Contingent Worker Types
There are four different types of contingent workers that can be on-boarded at Lilly.
Workers hired to staff projects or augment teams with specific skills. They typically fill a specific role, such as a backfill for a Lilly employee on a leave of absence (LOA) or supplemental staff for short-term needs.
Vendors hired under a long-term agreement to take ownership of an end-to-end process, performed on- or off-site, such as cafeteria workers, legal claims, contact centres, collections, benefits or payroll.
Highly specialized providers engaged to deliver specific, documented deliverables and services. This could include management or strategy consultants, IT consultants, auditors, outside counsel/legal discovery, or HR services (training, coaching, assessments, recruiting, etc.).
Individuals who require site and/or system access, but who do not fit into any of the other categories. This could include members of the board of directors, regulators, or transition services agreement (TSA) workers.
In the United States, a background check and drug screen in compliance with Lilly’s US Screening Standards (found in Beeline under the Help menu) is required for any worker receiving Lilly unescorted site access (badge).
Risk Assessment and Safety Orientation
- All contingent workers must complete a risk assessment with Lilly Safety Management Group. At a minimum, contractors must attend the Contractor Risk Level 1 Contractor Orientation.
For Indianapolis Workers:
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday
- Time: 7:30 a.m.–8:15 a.m.
- Location: Lilly Technology Center South (LTC-S), Building 300, 1401 S. Harding St., Indianapolis, IN 46221
If you need additional information please coordinate with your Lilly Sponsor.
Note: The registration is a one-time process in Beeline to enable the supplier to independently onboard workers to Lilly thereafter.
The Supplier User Guide available in Beeline under the Help Menu will guide and support the supplier to onboard and maintain worker data in Beeline. All required supporting documentation, including background check material, can be found under the Help Menu in all supporting languages.

Supplier iSight Support
In 2002, Lilly entered into a Consent Order with the United States Federal Trade Commission ("Consent Order"), as well as a voluntary Assurances agreement with eight states (“States’ Assurances”) stemming from a situation in 2001. The Consent Order and States' Assurances, in nearly identical terms, required Lilly to take certain actions to address privacy issues within Lilly's operations regarding the handling of consumer PI. Although the Consent Order has recently expired, the States’ Assurances is still in effect. Therefore, all third parties that work with consumer PI in any manner for Lilly USA are required to comply with Lilly's Supplier Privacy Standard, Information Security Standard (linked above) and the terms of the States' Assurances. A copy of the States’ Assurances is provided for your review via this website. At a minimum, you will need to have privacy and security measures equivalent to those identified in the States’ Assurances with respect to the consumer PI you are handling on behalf of Lilly.
