Strategic Sourcing

 

Item and Service Requirements Discovery

 

The first step in the strategic sourcing process is to capture and validate item and service requirements. Here, we work with end-users to review purchase history information that was either provided or identified during a DSSI consulting project effort.

A critical component of this effort is to understand and document supplier services that are currently provided or supplier services that the client could benefit from in the near future. We know from experience, end-user service requirements must be addressed to ensure program adoption.
