Breakout Session: Maximizing Transparency in Supplier Contracts

  • Speakers: Jimmy Weisner
About the Session:
Complex, global supply chains encompass a multitude of supplier/customer relationships. A recipe for a successful relationship is one where both the supplier and customer work towards the same goals and objectives as a partnership. Effective partnerships are based on accountability, agreed upon standards, and transparency. Blind trust is not a formula for success in partnerships because partners will question the unknowns. In procurement unknowns can be cost, profit margins, service levels, prepayments, staffing levels, etc.. The best way to ensure a successful partnership between customer and supplier is to put all the facts on the table with a well negotiated, transparent contract.
You will learn:
  • How to structure RFPs to get quality responses that are easily evaluated against each other
  • Why certain contract structures are more transparent than others
  • Where non-transparent profit centers exist in supplier contracts and how to eliminate them
  • How to reduce opportunities for price increases that do not correspond with cost increases
  • How an annual audit can nurture relationships, set expectations, and establish accountability
