PITTSBURGH, PA — May 12, 2009
CombineNet extends heartfelt congratulations to the U.S. Postal Service's supply management organization for its recognition in the field of supply management technology by the Institute for Supply Management. The U.S. Postal Service has been awarded the ISM R. Gene Richter Award for Leadership and Innovation in Supply Management for its use of optimization technologies to drive better sourcing decisions and significant cost savings across the organization. The U.S. Postal Service team accepted the award at a special luncheon during the ISM Annual Conference in Charlotte, NC, last week.
"We are extremely proud of the entire supply management team at the Postal Service for their recognition by such a large and respected organization as ISM. We congratulate the entire Postal Service team for their innovation and leadership, and for the impressive results that they have created through strategic supply management," said Tony Bonidy, President and CEO of CombineNet.
This is the second award bestowed upon the U.S. Postal Service for their innovative use of sourcing optimization technologies, having been awarded the Global Supply Management Award at the 2007 Aberdeen CPO Summit. Both awards have recognized the significant savings the U.S. Postal Service has achieved through the use of sourcing optimization technologies to provide flexibility to suppliers to reduce costs and Optimized Scenario Analysis to understand the cost impact of sourcing decisions and arrive at the optimal balance of cost and value.
