Sourcing & Supplier Quotations

Manage supplier quotations and sourcing decisions at bid stage

As you build up your material costs, understand supplier spend thresholds (such as $2M TINA thresholds by supplier), commercial vs. sole-sourced priced and price/cost analysis requirements to automatically send selected materials for sourcing and supplier quotation requests via SAP Ariba or Coupa.

Material Selection for Sourcing

Determine materials in your project for sourcing, e.g. high cost and low confidence, expired contracts or more than $2M spend by supplier (TINA). Manage sourcing strategies and quantities across

optional sets.

Track Supplier Quotations

Import supplier sole-souced/competitive quotes across proposals, sets, years and quantity-scales. Proactively update material costs, inflation and quantity-curve factors.

Create Sourcing Events in Coupa or Ariba

Combine materials into sourcing events across buyers, commodity codes and funding sources, sending RFX parts lists to Ariba or Coupa. Manage sourcing and procurement deadlines and quantity/date ranges.

Manage Price and
Cost Analyses

Keep track of price (comparable) and cost analyses (cost breakdowns), to ensure your basis of estimate is compliant with US Government regulations such as FAR 15.2 and TINA.

Track Price Points across Optional Sets

Convert a range of end items and optional sets into consolidated quantity-scales for supplier quote requests. Curve supplier quotes to your desired quantities and period of performance based on PO placement or delivery.

Adjust Supplier Quotations

Select supplier quotes and add decrements to model future price negotiations or increments for missing charges. Track fixed recurring, non-recurring and unitized fees (e.g. expedite or first article inspection).

Supplier Quotations are Critical

Manage Accuracy of Supplier Spend

Depending on the degree to which you are outsourcing production, non-recurring activities such as engineering, materials, or sub-assemblies in your end product externally, supplier quotations and contracts are critical drivers for cost and project delivery margins in your business. Twenty5 allows you to control and connect supply management functions and tools, such as Ariba sourcing or Coupa, with our proposal costing and pricing solution, so you can ensure accuracy in the quotations, suppliers, quantities, products, and time, without overloading your team.

Ensure Compliance with TINA

The supplier spend threshold beyond which you need to provide a cost basis recently increased from $750K to $2M; however, a complex program or project-based proposal will typically have several suppliers with anticipated spend above that $2M threshold. Twenty5 allows you to select which parts have commercially available prices, valid existing supplier agreements and recent quotations, and which parts require new supplier quotations to be solicited prior to the BOE due date.

Capitol Building

Designed on SAP HANA for Organizations Running SAP

Our solution takes full advantage of SAP's robust HANA database. It is natively integrated with your CRM and SAP S/4 system to re-use master data already maintained in SAP, such as resource pools, BOMs, materials, routings, suppliers, customers, etc. At the same time, we leverage and reference your rich transaction history sitting in SAP, such as supplier quotes, contracts, purchase orders and work orders, to anchor estimates in reality.

 

Most long-time SAP customers have non-SAP data sources critical for the bid & proposal process, such as DOORS, Primavera, PLM, MS-Dynamics and Salesforce. Don't worry; we've got you covered. We can even import data from non-SAP ERP systems, and from Excel.

 

We have added flexibility to fit your specific landscape and security requirements regarding deployment. We support several deployment scenarios - such as directly in your S/4 HANA instance, in a self-hosted HANA sidecar, or from the cloud - secure, scalable and compliant.
