Politics and Procurement

July 24th, 2015

What do they both have to do with each other?


Next year will be another presidential election and campaigns are already revving up their advertising efforts, but what does this have to do with procurement?

Today’s blog is by Margaret Stewart, Executive Assistant at SafeSourcing.

You have probably already seen presidential forerunners in the news lately, and if you are lucky enough not to, you likely will see them soon. The ads often demonize opponents while glorifying their own candidate, just as the next ad shows the opposite. Even if we ignore all the advertisements and rely on our own research and opinions, how does one know if any of the candidates will actually fulfill their promises?

This is where procurement comes in – your business is faced with suppliers and vendors from all over the place, similar to our government elections. One will say their business is best and competitors pale in comparison, just as the competitor states the opposite.  This is when research and your own values come into play.

SafeSourcing can help your business do the research and find the right fit for your organization based on the values you prefer. Whether you prefer local vendors or national chains, SafeSourcing can help you decide what would work best for price, value, and goal.

But, again, how do you know that SafeSourcing and the suppliers will do what we promise? First, SafeSourcing can help you with your vendor contracts so that everything promised is fulfilled. Second, SafeSourcing offers a risk free trial of our services so you can see what we can do for your company. We know we can help your organizations and believe that once you try us, you will see how much we can save you and how much help we can be.

For more information on how SafeSourcing can help with finding the right supplier candidate for you, or on our “Risk Free” trial program, please contact a SafeSourcing Customer Service representative
