Objectives and Key Deliverables

In advance of negotiations with 12-15 suppliers of direct materials, we require analytical baselining, identification of sourcing levers, a comprehensive target-setting approach, development of RFP materials, and price-improvement tracking for the company's head of procurement. This is a simple sourcing project as the procurement team will run the RFP processes, they just need great professionalization.

We require development of spend profiles, vendors, savings levers, and category strategies for 8-12 procurement categories. These include consumables such as uniforms and toilet paper, fleet contracts and capital equipment. Additionally, the consultant is responsible for tracking project progress and savings identified or implemented as a result of negotiations.
The consultant is required to be on-site four days per week for 10 weeks; Boston-area based consultants are a plus.

Experience with procurement / sourcing projects for a major consulting firm such as AT Kearney, likely to be Senior Associate level.
