TOPIC:  Tips, tricks, and techniques to uncover freely available, but difficult to find information for Sourcing Professionals.


ABOUT THE TOPIC:  Public documents such as bid results, Bureau of Labor Statistics data, and Government Services Administration pricing offer Sourcing Professionals an opportunity to collect this data to be used as external benchmarks.  Knowledge of the pricing and terms a supplier has with other customers can be leveraged during negotiations and contract development.  Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to use efficient research techniques to uncover and leverage these external benchmarks.
