Vandemoortele uses SAP Ariba to support the entire sourcing process. It allows suppliers to participate in sourcing events, follow the evaluation process in a safe and transparent environment.
2. Request for proposal (RFP)
Vandemoortele uses a Request for proposal to create a questionnaire with sections, questions, requirements, and/or line items to collect pricing information, and/or qualify suppliers, possibly for an auction. Vandemoortele will weigh and grade supplier responses, and create an overall score for each supplier.
Vandemoortele uses auctions for direct competitive and real-time exchange of information between Vandemoortele and the Supplier. Vandemoortele schedules auctions carefully to ensure that all participants can participate at the same time.
