Tip 1: There must be something for you to audit against - audit criteria. What are these? Your organization or you have to decide on this.

Tip 2: There should be defined limits and boundaries for an audit

Otherwise, your question is too broad to answer nor can the audit be meaningful for you or your suppliers.

For some samples: supplier audit

Thanks harry

Audit Criteria is Pre Qualification of Sub contractor
What you stated is the purpose of the audit.

What are the requirements you will audit against?
Does your supplier/subcontractor know these requirements??
It is not fair to audit a supplier against unknown requirements.

Firstly is there a standard that the supplier is certified too? ISO9001 or TS16949? I would start with that then get their quality manual and based on the issues you have had with the supplier focus on the procedures that control those issues. That should provide enough criteria to audit them.
