Vendor Management

Successful organisations focus on value throughout their entire operation. 
We can help ensure maximised value is obtained from your suppliers and carried through to your customers.

Are any of your organisation's existing supply relationships not functioning to their maximum potential?
Are there potential areas in your organisation's operations that may benefit from an outsourced supply arrangement?
Does your organisation need to formalise any supplier/partner agreements?
Do you require experienced contract negotiators to assist with formal engagements or supply problem resolution?

If you answer "Yes" to any of these questions then deep blue can deliver a solution...

Review of existing vendor agreements
A review of existing agreements and arrangements can bring a practical focus to your supply relationships.

Investigate potential outsource opportunities
We can examine functions within your organisation that may benefit from an outsource solution. 
If your organisation is already embarking down this path, we can assist in:
1) Defining the optimal outsource elements, 
2) Running the whole process from tender, to selection, through to implementation.

Contract negotiation & facilitation
We are experienced in negotiation of Professional Services, Software, Hardware and Maintenance agreements.
We liaise efficiently and effectively between legal, technical and business groups.

We can save money for your organisation
- not only in negotiating optimised agreements - but also in driving the solution through to its most efficient conclusion.

This service has proven very useful to CTO's and other heads of function who need to have complete control but in most cases simply do not have the time to invest in the watertight definition of an agreement.

Preparation and support of client/vendor processes
We can develop standard processes, based on your requirements and culture, that provide working mechanisms for controlling your vendor relationships.

We can also run complete one-off processes on your organisation's behalf if required. 

Typical processes include:
- Requests for information (RFI)
- Requests for proposal/quotation (RFP/RFQ)
- Service level agreements (SLA)
- Master services agreements (MSA)
- Statement of Work (SOW)
- Licence agreements
- Proof of concept (POC)
