ANOTHER VIEW ON
TRADITIONAL SUPPLY CONTRACTS
With a traditional supply contract you make a direct agreement with the supplier of your needed goods. But these contracts are based on a one-time tender of auction. Or just based on the supply performance in the past. In the supply contract you agree on pricing, deliverytimes, quality and price adjustments.
For the timeline a supply contract is agreed there are a lot of factors can change the behavior of the supplier. Mostly contracts are for a period of 1 -3 or 5 years. With monthy reports Key Performance Indicators (KPI) can track the performance of the supplier. But maintaining a supplier will cost upto $60.000 a year on negotiations, price adjustments, visits etc. With one supplier your risk management is not stable and in a 5 year contract the competition can develop extremely. When you need to control several suppliers you'll have a full-time job by managing the suppliers. And you create a group of purchasers within your organisation who are controlling the suppliers.
We can supply aswell on the traditional supply contracts method.
