  • Planning

    Most businesses understand their needs for the coming year based on a strategic vision of where the company needs to grow to meet customer needs. The procurement planning process identifies which business needs can be best met by procuring products or services outside the organization. To do this involves determining whether to procure, how to procure, what to procure, and when to procure.

  • Soucing

    After we plan the solicitation, then we need to take action to acquire the resources. Through solicitations, we obtain information (bids and proposals) from prospective sellers about their products and services so we can determine the best value for how project needs can be met. Next we need to evaluate the bids or proposals based on our criteria to select a vendor. This process requires a methodical process that considers the most important requirements in a competitive process to achieve the best value for every dollar spent.

  • Contracts

    With the vendor selected, we need to put in place the contracts that assure we get the value promised. There are 13 types of contracts, 14 quality tools, and 4 methods to capture vendor performance. We will look at all of these so you can put together the right tools to manage your vendors for the most value. Finally, we will look at the process of verifying that all administrative matters are concluded on a contract that is otherwise physically complete. This involves completing and settling the contract, including resolving any open items. Good negotiation is the result of better preparation than the opposition. We will look at how you prepare for, conduct, and lead your team through negotiating with your vendors so that you get the best value for every dollar spent.

  • Diversity

    A program for supply management professionals whose responsibilities include supplier diversity with responsibility for strategic diversity initiatives. Supplier diversity is a recognized supply chain management practice that helps businesses grow by using diverse suppliers in our community. Both government and private industry practice supplier diversity as a way to increase competition and develop quality vendors. With this program, people know your team follows and practices supplier diversity management in a way to ensure high quality vendors and a secure supply chain from socioeconomic designated businesses in your local economy.

  • Leadership

Professional Certification

The Certified Professional in Supply Management® was developed from an Institute for Supply Management survey that drew upon knowledge, expertise and skill sets of supply management professionals at the manager level or above from organizations with revenues of more than US $1 billion from various industries. The CPSM® Certification reflects the knowledge areas needed to perform the important occupational duties of professionals employed in supply management as determined by the Professional Credentials Committee recommendations to ISM Board of Directors based upon results of Job Analysis. Fourteen components of supply chain management were found to be either part of the individual’s personal job responsibilities and/or supervisory responsibilities or the responsibility of someone else in the supply management organization.
