Abstract

This paper presents findings of a study of the prequalification of suppliers for a major service industry organisation in a developing country. The aim of the exercise was to centralise the purchasing activities of the organisation and consequently leverage its purchasing power. The analysis focuses on one item and it indicates a significant difference in capabilities between the high performing and low performing suppliers. The significance of the study is the ability of organisations to impact the corporate behaviour of other organisations in their supply chain.
