Supplier and Contract Management
FREE webinars, email guidance and support on improving your commercial performance
Within any organisation, there are some suppliers who are critical and strategic in their relationship with you. The procurement teams have to effectively manage these critical suppliers to ensure that they are driving the right behaviours to build sustainable relationships that are beneficial for both parties. It is critical that you consider your impact on these critical suppliers as well as their impact on you and that you establish regular and routine engagement to drive continuous improvements and innovation.
The foundation to successful supplier management is robust data and information that will cover elements of spend analysis as well as contract management and performance metrics. Having a technology platform to support supplier management will ensure that you can manage a standard process and that you maximise the use of available data and information.
Following the award of a contract with a supplier, it is critical that your procurement teams manage the delivery and performance of the supplier to ensure that you maximise the benefits of the deal you have put in place.
For large scale operations, it is critical that you adopt a standard process for contract management and the use of a technology platform can help you to manage the adherence to this standard process. Use of a technology solution can also ensure that you have access to the data and information required to effectively and efficiently manage the contract throughout the whole term.
