Want to know if reverse auctions help or hinder supplier relationships? Need to know what are considered best practices in terms of developing a minority supplier program within an organization?

To help answer such questions, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) of Tempe, Ariz.,has opened a resource centre featuring a Research on Demand service that is equipped to handle inquiries covering a wide range of topics.

Whether you are interested in developing strategies that help reduce the costs of purchased services, or are wondering how purchasing/supply can attract and retain high performance talent, ISM’s Research on Demand service has the tools to help.

The service can perform in-depth secondary research through its access to the most comprehensive databases available today. Staff will provide current information on the topic of interest, and objectively report the findings in a concise format.

The service is a joint initiative between ISM and CAPS Research. Research reports can be created on a per request basis or through an annual plan. Most reports are completed within three to five weeks.
