Up to 1.5 million in savings for a single contract thanks to sourcing with Silex
From its creation, the procurement department of the Region Sud decided to equip itself with a sourcing tool to become more professional and save money. Region Sud chose Silex to optimize and secure the practice of sourcing and thus improve its performance.
About Region Sud
Each year, Region Sud spends an average of 350 million euros. The procurement department now has 10 people, including an assistant director and a department head. All purchases are organized semi-centrally with 25% of the amounts listed managed by the procurement department. The rest is taken care of directly by the prescribers and the directions of each service.
Generalize the practice of sourcing within Region Sud
Sourcing allows public buyers to consult economic operators to better prepare their markets and thus avoid unsuccessful procedures. The practice has been included since 2015 in the order of July 25 relating to public procurement in order to encourage public purchasers to use it, in particular to promote compliance with the principle of equal treatment between candidates.
The Region Sud procurement department wishes to promote the practice of sourcing to meet legal obligations, but also to strengthen competition in its panels and improve its economic performance.
Achieve purchasing savings by increasing the rate of competition in the supplier panels
The use of Silex has made it possible to generalize sourcing, not only for purchases managed by the procurement department, but also throughout the organization. Prescribers are satisfied with the choices made by the service. As proof: they regularly turn to them to ask them to carry out sourcing.
The centralization of data on Silex facilitates the sharing of information within the organization. Purchasing also benefits from monitoring, mapping and reporting tools to communicate more easily on its actions and results.
