Strategic Sourcing

Companies worldwide are beginning to see the importance and benefits of good procurement strategies and strategic sourcing.

We conduct timely Strategic Sourcing projects through a simplified 7 step process.  Strategic sourcing is a continuous process with a very a rigorous approach.   This process is focused on the clients’ needs, company goals and objectives and will provide the client with a total cost of ownership (TCO) for that particular commodity.  There are many benefits to strategic sourcing some of which are standardizing pricing, supplier relationships, improved operational efficiencies, cost savings and quality of service.  A successful and fluent strategic sourcing process will lead to the development of multi -year contracts with standard terms and conditions.

The Consultant from Procurement Management Services Inc. proved her value by leading some very high valued, complex projects for Mackenzie Health.  She led the Mackenzie Health Senior Leadership Team through the RFP process and had a thorough understanding of the healthcare sector and BPS Procurement Directive. We were extremely happy with the delivery of service, professionalism, and response to Mackenzie Health requests. Her flexibility and willingness to change schedules to accommodate Mackenzie Health, her attention to detail and organization capabilities contributed to the success of the projects.  She recommended contractual provisions, including service level measurements, that assisted Mackenzie Health in managing their suppliers effectively throughout long terms.  Mackenzie Health wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to her to work on other opportunities in the future.”
