  8. 8. Representative Engagement: Bulk Solvents Buy Situation: Client was buying ~$6 million of bulk solvents and ethanols from combination of distributors and manufacturers. Given recent price increases, client wanted to see if we could analyze spend and improve their negotiating position. Solution: We analyzed spend and identified ability to aggregate spend across multiple different products. We also identified where manufacturers could effectively compete with distributors. We conducted 2 online bidding events, one for 19 mmlbs of 6 different solvents, and one for 6.5 mmlbs of ethanols (3 different industrial grades). Both events were for a 2-year supply, with quarterly price protection. Results: Contacted 20 suppliers, 15 agreed to participated. Active bidding on all lots, lowest bidders for each product was the incumbent, but yielded $620,000 in savings (10%). Step / Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Analyze spend / determine purchasing strategy Refine and distribute event statement Gather qualifying bids Determine handicapping Run dynamic event Analyze results and award
