Supplier Selection Report

Assume you are chief executive officer (CEO) of a company that will develop products used in laboratory testing. Together with your chief science officer (CSO), you will need to develop a supplier base to deliver the following materials:

· Muscles from turkey legs

· Hearts from pigs

· Alligator claws

· Corn leaves

· Kelp from Chesapeake Bay

These materials must be purchased in raw form as personnel at your company will process the materials in a proprietary way based on customer requirements for your products. Describe how you will (a) locate suppliers who can provide these materials reliably and in high volumes, (b) assess the potential suppliers’ capabilities to meet your requirements, (c) determine the evaluative criteria for the suppliers once they begin to deliver. Also, discuss the benefits and costs of buying from multiple suppliers or establishing a contract for long-term supply. Make sure you rely on resources from the first three weeks of the class.
