Get Your Materials Sourcing Under Control
Sourcing is the process of developing supply channels at the lowest total cost and not just lowest purchase price. In order for the sourcing process to be effective, it requires a dedicated purchasing staff. Whether it’s for a one-time capital equipment purchase, or for ongoing supply of particular goods or services, clearly defining the need and enabling an effective competitive bidding process are critical if you are looking to obtain best value for your purchasing budget.
This process can be complex and time consuming, and it’s often necessary to show that a fair and methodical approach has been taken. Rules that govern the process are complex and constantly changing.
