The Sourcing Specialist will report to a Sourcing Lead within The Johns Hopkins Health System (JHHS) as a member of one of three sourcing groups: Clinical, Non-Clinical or Capital Equipment. Depending on placement, this position will be responsible for executing against a sourcing strategy for (1) capital equipment, (2) clinical products, or (3) non-clinical items and purchased services, all across a range of different types of contracts. The Sourcing Specialist will engage in day to day sourcing activities including, but not limited to, drafting and negotiating contracts, supporting the monitoring of contract performance, contributing to the Request for Proposal (RFP) process, developing, evaluating and managing vendor relationships and implementing contracts with end users. The Sourcing Specialist is additionally responsible for conducting benchmarking activities, reviewing industry best practices, analyzing corporate spend and collaborating in cross-functional teams to achieve cost savings, increase quality, and build and maintain a competitive portfolio of pricing for capital equipment, clinical products, non-clinical items, and purchased services. The Sourcing Specialist will, as appropriate, collaborate with the Divisions of Analytics and Value Analysis within the JHHS Supply Chain Department.
