              For most companies, strategic sourcing is an opportunity to achieve significant reduction in operating costs.

              Why Strategic Sourcing?

              • Leverage the supplier base to improve the operating performance of your company or agency
              • Obtain global market benchmark intelligence
              • Annualized, quantifiable cash savings
              • Reduce ongoing hidden operational costs
              • Achieve year-to-year cost reduction
              • Total cost management approach focused
              • Assist in all aspects of Implementation
              • Guaranteed results for clients

              General Themes

              • Less than 25% of the companies surveyed can’t even locate supplier contracts, let alone monitor and manage contract performance
              • Procurement strategies are often not aligned with financial and business initiatives
              • Procurement continues to lag other functions in the utilization of automation and analysis tools
              • Most companies have applied a strategic sourcing process to less than half of their overall spending
              • Approximately 70% of the companies continue to make purchasing decisions at the divisional or site levels
              • Nearly 33% of purchases are off-contract (i.e.) maverick buys
              • Domain expertise is limited to most strategic or high-dollar spend categories
              • Only a few companies have standardized sourcing or procurement processes
              • Clear visibility into total enterprise spending is not available
              • Detailed management reporting and monitoring is difficult or non-existent
