Position Summary: We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Sourcing Leader (Medsurg area (Clinical)).
In this role, the successful candidate is responsible for Strategic Sourcing which is the practice of supplier selection based on the total cost of ownership (TCO) approach. TCO extends from conception of need through to disposition and emphasizes supplier selection not on a first-cost basis, but on costs of the whole supplier experience and the impact to departments within the Hospitals Center. It calls for establishment of close client relationships to ensure needs, test policies driving demand, and establish open specifications. It proceeds to formal (i.e., requests for proposal RFP) and informal (i.e., direct negotiations, benchmarking) market tests introducing competition wherever practical. Strategic Sourcing keeps the internal client involved in the complete process so that supplier selection has direct client input, thereby making any resulting implementations much easier. While savings are the most commonly understood measure of its work, Strategic Sourcing adds significant value to clarity of specifications of need, integrity of the supplier selection process, open evaluations of purchasing alternatives, contract documentation, ease of supplier implementations, supplier performance measurement and reporting, and confidence the organization benefits from decisions made on a TCO basis.
