Strategic Sourcing Services for Defense Contractors
Defense contractors face unique organizational challenges, especially in an era of decreased government spending.
With the growing challenge of Federal Government budget deficits, military technology and equipment manufacturers are frequently required to combat and reduce daily operating costs while still delivering a high quality product to the Department of Defense. These cost reduction challenges require unique solutions to battle difficulties in a down market and comply with ever-changing rules, regulations, and oversight while coordinating multiple suppliers.An increasingly competitive market, a slowdown in new weapons programs and defense projects, and a maze of complex regulations have forced contractors for the military to place focus on their own internal costs. Many of these defense companies have already reduced expenditures and headcount wherever possible, and are now searching for other methods to increase savings. Source One can help!
Source One’s strategic sourcing expertise in both direct?and indirect spend categories helps defense contractors increase both efficiency and savings.
Source One’s cost reduction specialists have broad subject-matter expertise, which can help defense companies as they look to increase savings in their indirect and direct spend categories. Once an initial analysis of their spend is completed, our experts work with the military technology and equipment manufacturers to provide customized solutions that satisfy the firm’s cost control goals. Advancing long-term strategic cost initiatives and tactical buying practices allows defense contractors to better improve their present and potential performance metrics.
As an added benefit, Source One’s strategic sourcing and procurement professionals can guide your organization through the maze of steps needed to gain a government contract, such as identifying FSC, SVC, PSC, and NAICS codes, obtaining a DUNS number, and a CAGE code for your suppliers.
