Strategic Sourcing


Negotiation and Contracting


There are five factors unique to DSSI that allow our sourcing professionals to consistently achieve significant savings during negotiation and contracting.

  • The market insights our sourcing professionals can glean from our proprietary database that contains pricing and transaction histories pertaining to millions of items;
  • The competitive process used to generate the bids we consider;
  • The volume of spend we represent and can actually deliver to the selected supplier(s);
  • The process efficiencies we can offer the selected suppliers; and,
  • Our deep understanding of location-specific servicing requirements.

Simply put, our strategic sourcing professionals can offer the supply base a lower cost of doing business combined with a realizable increase in business volume.
