- That a three-bid RFP process alone virtually guarantees you are paying too much?
- If your internal sourcing team has the resources to adequately cover all categories?
- Whether savings are lost because you don’t have the time to get to all categories?
- The usage, suppliers, specifications and price paid for all categories of spend?
- What you are spending on beyond the top few categories?
- Where different regions and divisions are overlapping their spend?
- Whether negotiated savings are getting to the bottom line?
- Whether suppliers are billing you accurately and consistently for agreed upon price levels?
- Whether you have maverick spend?
