REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

Defining a way forward for


benchmarking
supply chain management
performance in
Canada

March 27, 2015

INTRODUCTION:

Request for Proposals: Benchmarking


The Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) is the leading and
largest association inCanada for supply chain management professionals.
The organization is a federation, consisting of a national office in partnership
with ten provincial and territorial Institutes.
SCMA and its provincial and territorial Partner Institutes represent
professionals serving in all market sectors, from manufacturing to services
delivery, in both public and private sector, and across a range of career
disciplines that include sourcing and procurement, transportation and
logistics through final disposal.
To promote the goal of advancing and promoting the profession and to
demonstrate the value that professionals in supply chain management
contribute to an organizations success, SCMA seeks to establish a
benchmarking program of supply chain management performance in
Canada.
The program would establish a management database that provides timely
process and performance benchmarks at the appropriate level of industry
segmentation, generating meaningful information for SCMA members and
the supply chain sector. One of the key barriers to producing effective
benchmarking research is the ability to identify meaningful key performance
indicators that multiple sectors have the capacity to track in a similar way,
and also have a willingness to share the data in an anonymous fashion with
the expectation of receiving access to the comparative data as their benefit
from participation.
PROJECT SCOPE:
SCMA is seeking proposals from qualified proponents, capable of providing
the research and business planning process that would guide the
preparation and provision ofa Supply Chain Benchmarking Program in the
following Deliverables Stages:
Phase 1(which represents the full scope of this particular RFP) Through
consultation and research, plan and develop a Supply Chain Benchmarking
Program, tailored to address the parameters described in following sections,
including a detailed implementation plan.
Phase 1 Time-line September 1, 2015through March 31, 2016
Phase 1 Budget Allocation Up to $ Cdn20,000, to include all
expenses
The results of Phase 1 would then inform the following stages of the project,
which are outside the scope of this RFP

Request for Proposals: Benchmarking


Phase 2 Program Implementation To refine Benchmarking Program
design, through consultation and market testing, including data analysis and
delivery of preliminary reports
Phase 2 Time-line to be confirmed possibly March 31, 2017
Phase 2 Budget to be defined through completion of Phase 1; to be
approved by Board of Directors, prior to activation of Phase 2
Phase 3 On-going Program Delivery and Management Subsequent
proposals may be invited from the successful proponent, to deliver and
manage the Benchmarking Program on a continuing basis
Phase 3 Time-line to be determined (probably 2017 and on-going)

2.1 PROJECT PARAMETERS

Questions and Issues to be Addressed

2.1 a)What to Benchmark ?


Process Benchmarks
Performance Benchmarks
The proposal must recommend and explain which benchmark
indicators for each type of Supply Chain Benchmarks
2.1 b)
Who to Bench-mark ?
The proposal must describe the process(es) to be used to identify and
qualify organizations to be used as benchmark comparators. Ideally,
comparators will include Best-in-Class and Best Practice
organizations, and will describe the methods to be used to identify
and equate indicators

Request for Proposals: Benchmarking


2.1 c) Scope of processes to be benchmarked
The proposal will identify appropriate benchmark indicators for
activities including, but not limited to:
Product design and manufacturing
Purchasing/Procurement and Strategic Sourcing
Materials/Inventory Management
Logistics and Transportation
Customer and supplier relationship management
Demand planning
Reverse logistics
Proposals should justify and recommend the scope of business
processes that should be benchmarked.
2.1 d)
Point-in-time versus Continuous Process
Proposals should indicate what benchmarks should be measured on a
single or periodic basis, and which could and should be measured on
an on-going basis.
2.1 e)Data Collection
Proposals should indicate the data source of information required to
calculate and analyze each proposed benchmark indicator.
Data sources should be easily accessible from standardized MIS
reports, and should consist of components which are easily compared
and verified from organization to organization.
2.1 f)

Output Usage
SCMA envisions that Benchmarking Project outputs will provide
information for the use by all its Stakeholders to:
Identify gaps in supply chain performance,
Develop process improvement opportunities,
Identify trends that signal private and public action,
Target research and project opportunities,
Identify areas for professional education and development
Stakeholders include individual and corporate members, government,
the academic/consulting community and the SCMA organization itself.

2.1 g)
Support for decision-making at strategic and tactical
levels
Supply chain managers make decisions and plan at the strategic,
tactical and operational levels.Strategic decisions impact how the
supply chain supports the organizations competitivestrategy, obtains
and allocates resources and organizes the multiple activities across
the firm.Tactical decisions drive the utilization of resources and
operational decisions focus onimplementing specific processes. The
benchmarking data needs to address both strategic-based
andprocess/tactical-based functions. The proponent should justify and

Request for Proposals: Benchmarking


recommend what benchmark metricsshould be measured for each
function and at each level.
2.1 h)
Industry scope
There is complexity and diversity across and within different industry
sectors. Benchmarks atbroad economy wide or industry level do not
allow the benchmark to fully deliver results thatindividuals or firms
can utilize to make valid comparisons. Benchmarks need to reflect
thestructural differences across firms and how this impacts on their
performance. The proponentshould justify and recommend industry
classifications and sub classification (i.e. degree ofdisaggregation) for
organizing benchmark data. The benchmarking data should be
relevant toboth major industry sectors and emerging sectors (such as
services, public sector and smallbusiness) that are part of the
Canadian economy and represented in the SCMA membership.
2.1 j)

Geographic Scope
The core users of the benchmarking data are Canadian firms and
stakeholders with operationsin Canada. While the focus of the
benchmarking program should be of performance and bestpractice in
Canada, many Canadian firms compete globally. The proponent is
asked to identifybenchmarking programs in the U.S. or North
American and-or global-wide which may be leveraged toenhance the
value of the Canadian benchmarking data.

2.1 k)Existing Benchmarking Data


There are many available commercial benchmarking firms. There are
also existing
benchmarking studies, some conducted periodically and others are
one-offs. What supply chainbenchmarking is already in the market?
What needs of SCMA members would be met byaccess to
commercially available benchmarking? Is it better to purchase or
provide access toexisting benchmarking studies that are available?
The proposal should include the recommended approach for SCMA
and its Partners to achieve the optimum level of analysis and
resource utilization. Solution(s) may include a blend of purchased and
custom metrics to achieve the desired result.
2.1 m)
Benchmarking Implementation
The proposal should provide an evaluation and recommendation of
the alternative paths forimplementation of the benchmarking
program. Alternatives may include in-house at the national office, inhousevia a Lead Institute, in-house at each Institute, external
consultant, or an educational institution. Alternatives may
alsoconsider collaboration between Canadian organizations and
organizations in the U.S. to collectcross country benchmarking which
addresses the issues of geographic scope discussed above.

Request for Proposals: Benchmarking


2.1 n)
Sources of Benchmarking Information
The proposal should identify, evaluate and recommend from whom
and how the needed benchmarkinginformation is collected. Issues
include the feasibility and ease of gathering the data, whether it is
availablefrom industry, whether it is gathered consistently, whether
they are willing to share it, how datais displayed and confidentiality
requirements.
2.1 p)
Long-term Sustainability and Governance
The proposal should identify and evaluate how benchmarking
programs, particularly thosedealing with the supply chain sector are
funded on a multi-year basis. Alternatives includeinternally funded,
subscription, user fees, corporate sponsorship, government funding
and utilization of freeservices.

3.1

PROJECT DELIVERABLES

3.1 a)Benchmarking Plan Including Implementation Plan


The Plan will need to include the following items:
