Strategic Sourcing Guide to Mining Engineering Services Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Technical Services market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Mining Engineering Services. Suppliers are introducing self-service tools such as virtual agents in their customer service ecosystem to reduce the time and costs incurred by customers to resolve an issue.

Many suppliers are investing in automation technologies such as AI, robotics, machine learning and big data to optimize their business operations and offer new services to their customers. However, a part of this investment is also passed to buyers in the form of high prices being charged for value added services.

Suppliers are increasingly offering a 'bundle' of services which is marketed as a cost saving option. The bundled offering often includes services that are not required by the buyer or are charged at a much higher rate than an A la carte option with another supplier.

Mining Engineering Services Procurement Best Practices

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Mining Engineering Services category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Mining Engineering Services procurement best practices.

For example, Cost saving opportunities may reduce exponentially in relation to the time left for current contract to expire or required timeline to start the engagement. Therefore sufficient interval should exist between initation of new procurement and expected start date of the new contract for Mining Engineering Services.

Buyers should engage suppliers that can provide services customized for their industry. Though most suppliers offer services across various industries, category managers should ensure that services can be customized and negotiate on pricing based on the level of required customization.

Category managers must ensure that they have clearly identified and listed down potential negotiation levers to maximize the value of their category spend before entering into contract-related discussions with service providers. Common negotiation levers to maximize value include deadlines, terms related to payments, (including fees, expenses, and payment timelines) and assistance required from the buyer's organization.

Risks in Mining Engineering Services procurement

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


  • Service providers depend on their personnel's expertise and business acumen to achieve high business growth. Competition for acquiring experienced professionals is extremely high in the market. They need to incorporate effective measures to retain talent as well as implement succession planning strategies

In the case of a loss of proprietary information or confidential information of the client's firm, service providers can become liable to pay hefty penalties
  • Contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms are not very common in the category but they do exist in certain situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question
