Acquisition Risk Analysis

  1. 1. Getting What you Paid for…..<br />Acquisition Risk Analysis<br />Omnia Paratus Corporation<br />
  2. 2. A recent poll showed that 68% of companies experienced financial losses directly related to Supply Chain disruptions<br />Most of the financial impacts were related to supplier performance that did not meet demand requirements, and delayed, damaged or misdirected shipments.<br />The majority of companies polled are in the early stages or have yet to think about integrating Risk Management into their Supply Chain<br /> Supplier related risks are most often identified after contract award is a program issue, not a risk:<br />Supplier shipment delay <br />Supplier capacity exceeded<br />Unable to meet technical requirements <br />1st Article or Flight Test failures<br />Parts damaged during shipment or rejected during quality inspection<br />Schedule delays caused by supplier performance can have an equal or greater financial impact to a program’s bottom line, but are often overshadowed budget impacts due to supplier cost overruns<br />
  3. 3. Incumbent<br />Supplier w/ Existing Capabilities<br />New Supplier<br />Client <br />Example<br />Best Value Analysis (BVA) is the most common Acquisition Analysis technique used, but it falls short in quantifying risk impacts<br />Score based on savings to program ~$300K<br />Technical Score based on:<br />- New Capability to Supplier<br />- Technical deviations req’d based on proposal<br />- 1st Article & Flight Req’d based on Customer reqt’s<br />BVA considers not only cost, but other quantifiable and non-quantifiable factors supporting an investment decision<br />Utilizes weighting scales for analyzing “True” program value of supplier bids<br />Can include, but is not limited to, performance, producibility, reliability, maintainability, and supportability enhancements<br />Intended to select the source offering the greatest overall benefit in response to the requirement<br />
  4. 4. Below is the fall out from the BVA on the previous screen, highlighting the realized cost and schedule impacts of undocumented risks <br />Design changes resulting from Technical deviations resulted in cost growth to original purchase order<br />Technical Deviations required by Supplier<br />Impact from production delays of 4 weeks<br />Program Award fee lost resulting in Supplier delays cause IMS milestones to be missed<br />Orders placed were against original design and fulfilled by Incumbent suppler<br />Fees required to get Incumbent supplier operations back up and minimize delay of deliveries to Customer<br />$390K overrun was a direct loss of company profit<br />Performing a sample analysis of a new supplier shows the potential risks that may be incurred when basing decisions on costs alone<br />Technical requirements outside current capabilities<br />Schedule impact due from potential delay of 1st Article Testing or Flight Test Requirements<br />Cost growth due to technical deviation’s required<br />Impact to Operations due to late supplier deliveries <br />
  5. 5. Integrating Risk Management directly into the acquisition analysis process is seamless and beneficial for forward planning Program Mgt <br />Request for ProposalDevelopment<br />Proposal Evaluation<br />Contract Award <br /><ul><li>Analyze potential risk impact and mitigation posture relating to supplier proposal’s

  27. 27. Post-Mitigation Analysis and Effectiveness
  28. 28. Program level risk adjusted cost and schedule analysis
  29. 29. Supplier selection
  30. 30. Contract Award</li></ul>Outcome<br />Compare supplier risk profile at proposal evaluation completion to determine outstanding risk exposure. <br />Assess program requirements, supplier capabilities and evaluation criteria to establish RFP<br />Provide insight into where supplier risks affect the program and uncover their true impacts.<br />
  31. 31. Supplier B<br />Supplier A<br />Supplier C<br />Monte Carlo simulations are utilized in order to quantified potential risk impacts within, supplier bids which can be compared <br />Supplier A<br />Supplier B<br />Supplier C<br />Illustrative<br />$700,000,000<br />$600,000,000<br />$500,000,000<br />Confidence Level Chosen<br />
  32. 32. Supplier Initial Cost<br />Risk Exposure<br />Side-by-side risk exposure calculations provides leadership with comparative insights into supplier potential costs impacts<br />Analysis will lead to a cumulative assessment of the total risk exposure and the potential impact to program budget.<br />All costs reported at the 90% confidence interval.<br />$39,100<br />Potential Risk Impact $179K<br />Potential Risk Impact $99K<br />Potential Risk Impact $25K<br />Program Cost (in thousands)<br />Illustrative<br />Component budget $500K<br />
  33. 33. Risk adjusted delivery schedules are then compared to determine the potential risk impact to program’s operations<br />Supplier A<br />Supplier B<br />Supplier C<br />Illustrative<br />Illustrative<br />Illustrative<br />Material Resource Planning requirement for this component is 04/25/2010<br />
  34. 34. The risk-adjusted cost and schedule results can be used as justification for contract award, as outlined in FAR’s Part 7 & 15<br />Initial review of Supplier bids would indicate “C” as the supplier of choice<br />Based on Supplier B & C delivery metrics and potential risk, schedule impact could result in more than a 3 months past MRP requirements<br />Based on supplier C’s lack of technical capabilities and schedule risk to operations, risk impact could equate to ~$100K over component budget<br />Based on risk adjusted Cost & Schedule proposal analysis supplier “A” should receive program consensus for contract award based on least amount of risk exposure to the program<br />
  35. 35. Given these potential benefits, a few key considerations are worth noting<br />In order to have a successful portfolio risk management process, it’s important that the constituent components of the program have sufficiently mature supply chain management and risk management processes.<br />Integration of acquisition risk analysis into a program’s budget and schedule is necessary to capture the magnitude of potential program risk impact by a single supplier<br />Identifying risks within a proposal enables forward looking program management that can be streamlined into existing risk database’s for future risk management planning and mitigation.<br />Qualitative risk analysis provides enhanced proposal evidentiary support and solid justification for awarding contracts<br />The success of a supply chain risk management program requires the consistent and active support of program leadership in order to be successful.<br />
