New Product & Supplier Recommendations

A fundamental responsibility of a member’s Procurement Advisor is the continued analysis of member spend to identify and recommend opportunities for additional value through new product and supplier options.  Based on this spend analysis, HPS will look for contracted alternatives to existing non-contracted purchases made by members through the extension of existing supplier programs or the execution of custom contracts.  A significant portion of the quarterly procurement reviews, as well as the member operations meetings, is dedicated to providing these recommendations to ensure that membership value is being constantly improved.  In addition to recommendations aimed at improving savings, your Procurement Advisor will also keep departmental personnel abreast of emerging products, trends and options to ensure that all of our members are leading the market in terms of guest services as they relate to product choices.
