Strategic Sourcing Guide to Diagnostic Supplies Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Medical and Surgical Equipment and Supplies market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Diagnostic Supplies. The growing need for highly skilled workforce specialized in Diagnostic Supplies is driving suppliers to increase compensation for experience professionals to retain them. This is inflating their OPEX and causing increase in procurement costs.

Companies that serve multiple markets are increasingly facing the dynamism in regulatory frameworks across countries. Coupled with increased costs across the value chain, suppliers are hard pressed to alter their business models and pricing structures to remain relevant in the market.

Buyers that have multiple locations under management are increasingly opting for a single supplier who can deliver the preferred solutions in a consistent manner across locations. Often suppliers with a physical presence across key geographies are preferred in such cases.

Diagnostic Supplies Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Diagnostic Supplies. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Buyers must clearly define clauses pertaining to the ownership of subcontracted services that are not part of their service providers' portfolios. This is necessary to ensure service consistency and control over sensitive data that are shared with sub-contracted firms.

Large organizations seek engagement with global category suppliers. However, they must try to achieve the right blend of regional and global suppliers in order to ensure the delivery at locations where global players do not have necessary capabilities.

It is important for category managers to track and measure the performance of suppliers against a set of defined KPIs that are agreed upon during the contract negotiation phase. The performance of suppliers can also be linked to a portion of their fee that can be paid upon rendering of services in a satisfactory manner.

Risks in Diagnostic Supplies procurement

Diagnostic Supplies procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Diagnostic Supplies procurement. Some examples include:


  • Suppliers may face a situation where they are unable to honor a contract in its entirety due to shortage of resources, finances or capabilities. While contractual terms safeguard buyers from the non-performance, their operations could still face massive disruptions due to suppliers' non-performance
  • Long credit period provided to buyers for making payment and fluctuating exchange rates pose a risk to suppliers. Default in payment by buyers would impact suppliers' ability to operate efficiently and may create a liquidity risk
  • Pricing terms in the contract could prove to be inadequate to safeguard the buyer from impact of a sudden increase in supplier's cost, often arising from a lack of clarity on scope of products or services to be delivered
