Honeywell manages the Supply Chain Management Center, a service organization that works closely with U.S. Department of Energy prime contractors to leverage approximately $4 billion of annual spend.
By collaborating on multi-site and enterprise-wide purchasing agreements, shared acquisition tools, and the adoption of best practices, the contractors yield lower prices, optimize business systems, and provide cost savings and added value to their customer, the DOE.
Since it was established in 2006, the SCMC has enabled the sites to save nearly $1 billion, money that goes back into the sites to achieve their national security, safety, and environmental management missions.
The SCMC’s success often is attributed to its close working relationships with the contractor locations, as well measuring performance and focusing on achieving a clear mission and vision:
