    After an initial coffee, you will define the project-specific supplier strategy together with engineering and project management in a commodity kick-off, based on the preferred supplier strategy and the requirements of the end customer. Subsequently, you evaluate received offers from suppliers for your project demands and prepare a contract and price negotiation of roughly 1 Mio Eur. After lunch in the canteen with colleagues, you will conduct a final award negotiation with a supplier, agree on the final contract terms and sign the supplier contract together with the project manager.
