Supplier Management

mdf commerce Strategic Sourcing customers are able to reduce procurement cycle downtime and streamline unnecessary costs by centralizing their qualified supplier pool. We provide our customers online access to view complete supplier profiles at a glance. While registering, suppliers select from commodity codes that best match the goods, services or construction services they provide. This information is then displayed for buyers to see which bidders meet the requirements of a specific RFP or quote request. The supplier management process is online and automated, allowing reallocation of your buying team to focus on other procurement initiatives. Qualified bid competition is key to the procurement process. Need even more vendors for a select project? Access our national database of qualified suppliers to increase competition (supplier networks are available in the US and Canada). Our configurable registration form ensures that supplier pre-qualification options meet the needs of your buying organization.

Supplier Diversity & Pre-Qualification

mdf commerce Strategic Sourcing incorporates configurable processes for all regulatory and business compliance requirements. Extensive reporting features allow our customers to explore registered suppliers’ attributes such as W/M/DBE, industry certifications, location and internal business compliance options. We know that supplier diversity is important to many purchasing organizations. Our e-procurement tools enable your organization to identify and increase visibility for pre-qualified, diverse suppliers. Online pre-qualification forms can be set up for specific bid opportunities or for your buying organization as a whole. Moving the buying organization’s pre-qualification form online is a seamless process and reduces our customers’ spending on bond and compliance fees. Qualifications, certifications, M/W/DBE status or other internal criteria are configurable to your organization and stored in your online supplier database, which can then be used for reporting and bid distribution to specific groups of suppliers using “By Invitation” bidding.

In the past I would receive several phone calls a day from vendors about our bidding process. The Bid System has let me point them to something where all our bids are centralized. Everyone is playing by the same rules. I think this is very important in the purchasing world.
