The NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is one of the nationâ€™s largest water and wastewater utilities, with 5,500 employees providing service to more than 8 million residents of New York City, and more than 1 million residents in Upstate New York. In order to provide 1 billion gallons per day of world-class drinking water and keep the New York harbor waters clean by treating 1.3 billion gallons per day of wastewater, we purchase up to $200 million per year of chemicals, operating and maintenance services, and biosolids and waste processing. We are creating a Strategic Sourcing office to transform the way we define and structure our operational needs, analyze the market, and interact with current and potential vendors for the goods and services we buy most frequently. Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), the Director of Strategic Sourcing will lead the planning, coordination, development and progress of strategic sourcing with the goal of achieving significant year-over-year reductions in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of goods and services procured while maintaining or improving product quality and vendor service levels by working closely with key stakeholders across the City and DEP to develop effective cost-reduction strategies and implementation plans, institutionalizing strategic sourcing across DEP and being directly responsible for the annual spending in these areas. Specifically, the Director will: Oversee the development and execution of strategies through the strategic sourcing process by guide strategic development for major commodities; overseeing the development of annual strategic sourcing plans; and communicating team progress with the CFO and senior business unit leaders. Oversee the process to select and manage suppliers by driving relevant supplier selection and negotiating processes based on each commodityâ€™s sourcing strategy; and establishing and maintaining relationships with the senior management of key suppliers. Measure and track internal performance within each spend category by tracking forecasted vs. actual savings and budget impact for the portfolio of commodities and communicate performance; and managing the development of data dashboards. Monitor strategy implementation by coordinating and communicating overall sourcing trends/ results of commodities to the CFO and business unit leadership. Drive annual productivity improvements in each spend category by developing and ensuring the implementation of ideas to optimize total cost of ownership for spend categories within the portfolio. Develop an expertise in the portfolio spend categories by remaining current with market trends through relationships with vendors, experts, and the market broadly. Identifying/defining sourcing best practices both within and outside of DEP and ensuring that those best practices are widely adopted by DEP's business groups. Integrate commercial mindset purchasing into core business processes by working actively with key stakeholders in operating business units.. Uphold internal and external policies, regulations and laws by maintaining a working knowledge of applicable laws, regulations and internal policies (e.g., code of ethics) or procedures; and developing and maintaining a close working relationship with DEP Chief Contracting Officer and citywide purchasing personnel.
