Strategic Sourcing Guide to Splints Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Medical and Surgical Consumables as well as Splints procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Providers are increasing their adoption of new tools and technologies to optimize efficiencies and reduce the time taken to launch products in the market. This is adding to their OPEX and will have an inflationary impact on the overall price paid by the buyers.

New locations and vendors are emerging as cost effective suppliers of Splints, offering an opportunity to widen the supplier base and gain further negotiation leverage with incumbent suppliers.

The growing need for highly skilled workforce specialized in Splints is driving suppliers to increase compensation for experience professionals to retain them. This is inflating their OPEX and causing increase in procurement costs.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.

Splints Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Splints procurement.

For example, Buyers should look to minimize the 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. Although these clauses are not very common in the category, suppliers may still insist on them, especially in situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question.

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.

Category buyers should invite bids from all potential service providers that have the ability to meet the overall requirements. Bids must be evaluated based on pre-defined parameters such as financial strength, reputation, offerings, geographical presence, and track record. Buyers can use standard scorecards to evaluate service providers and provide necessary feedback to rationalize the given scores. This helps in the effective documentation of decision-making processes.

Risks in Splints procurement

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


  • 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
  • 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
  • Suppliers are exposed to the risk of fluctuating prices of key inputs. This impacts the product price as suppliers would have to increase product price to maintain contribution margins
