Strategic Sourcing

Need experts with experience in strategic sourcing strategies in retail. Some of our questions: • is there a policy mandate to engage strategic sourcing and what is the typical dollar threshold for that engagement? • what are the consequences if business partners do not comply with this policy? • how is the policy enforced (consequences, audits, reports?) • who makes the decision on supplier selection – business partner’s or strategic sourcing, or both? • how does the reporting and working between the business partners and strategic sourcing team take place?

Pharmaceutical Sourcing And Procurement

Hello! we are a global market research firm and are seeking experts who can assist us with insights on "sourcing/procurement processes" specific to pharmaceuticals/cpg firms. We would like to engage via phone consult with experts knowledgeable on the set of questions produced below. Ideal candidates should have a deep knowledge of sourcing best practices, market drivers and trends, organization models, processes and kpis specific to sourcing and procurement. We are looking for a phone consult for a time period of 1-2 hours to discuss the points questions mentioned below: questionnaire organization: 1. How is the procurement function structured in companies - is it centralized, center led, decentralized? Why are they adopting this structure? Any challenges faced? 2. If sourcing is taken in its narrow sense (i.E. Source to contract), do companies have a dedicated sourcing team, or does sourcing fit within the responsibilities of, for example, category managers? 3. Do companies have a support function for sourcing, which focuses on the administration of sourcing events under the guidance of a category manager, strategic sourcer, or similar? 4. Is the sourcing team (whether dedicated or part of the category management structure) divided into global, regional and local teams, and how are the responsibilities for each determined? 5. How do organizations differentiate between strategic and tactical sourcing? Are parameters other than spend taken into account? 6. Do companies have a specific team responsible for tactical sourcing? What do they do and how is it determined what they address (e.G., spend thresholds, category criteria, local organizations)? 7. If companies have a dedicated sourcing excellence or sourcing support team, what is its size compared to the rest of the sourcing/procurement organization? (please answer in terms of either fte or ratios, e.G., 1 sourcing excellence resource to 1 category manager) process: 1. Do companies create category strategies? How do these influence sourcing activities? 2. How do companies conduct spend analysis and (how) is this used to create sourcing plans? 3. Who is responsible for managing 3rd party risk, and (how) does this influence sourcing activities? Does the sourcing team conduct supplier risk assessments as part of the strategic sourcing process? 4. Do companies use a contract management system that warns companies when categories need re-sourcing? 5. (how) is the p2p process set up to ensure that people requisitioning things are routed to the deals put in place by sourcing activities? What other tools (e.G., policy, catalogs) are used to deliver the same result? 6. How are appropriate buying channels defined and then executed, for example: free text pos, catalogue pos, pcards, vcards, nonpo/direct invoice, blanket pos and contract pos technology: 1. What technology modules (e-sourcing, spend analysis, supplier business management, contract management, etc.) do companies use in sourcing? 2. Who are the preferred vendors (e.G., gep, ariba, coupa, bravo solutions, etc.)? 3. How are implementation related issues between procurement & sourcing technology modules and erp and other suites taken care of? Kpis: 1. Please provide a full list of the kpi’s that procurement uses focus vertical: pharmaceuticals (primary), cpg (secondary) kindly drop in a note with your cv/relevant experience and we will get back in touch with the most interesting profiles! warm regards, budha
