Supplier Meetings with Clients

What should you expect when you Schedule a SafeSourcing meeting?


Today’s post is by Alyson Usserman, Project Manager at SafeSourcing

After an RFP or RFQ,  we are sometimes asked to communicate with vendors to schedule face-to- face meetings in relation to their quote and future business opportunities.   The following is a list of what you can typically expect as a supplier:

  1.  An agenda:   This will be a list of everything the client will want to discuss with you during the meeting.
  2. Meeting time, place, and contact: The client will typically decide on a location at their convenience, be prepared to travel. The client will then provide a contact who will also be in the meeting as well.
  3. Additional documents: On occasion a client will request additional documentation on the business opportunity to discuss.
  4. Questions: Prepare your questions ahead of the meeting in list format. This will help the client and the supplier think through any concerns.In person client meetings are the way onto the final negotiation process and contract signing, typically.
