There has never been a more critical time for our function – both in terms of the challenge it represents but also the opportunity it portends. No longer will we be relegated to the back rooms of shared service functions with any investment being a challenge. So, join us in learning from our mutual colleagues and peers. We’re going to increase the frequency of these virtual townhalls because the situation we face is so dynamic and our response MUST be as dynamic and proactive as possible.

Daniel Grant
Senior Vice President – Omnia Partners

Dan is responsible for the entire COVID response strategy for 310,000+ members, 200+ Fortune 1000 companies and $13B of spend across 35+ industries for OMNIA partners.

Here is what their members are facing and he’s having to deal with:

  • Supply chain risk / supply assurance
  • Current products on allocation or limited supply
  • Identifying additional risk (suppliers in outbreak areas, mfg capacity, transportation delays) 
  • Identifying domestic/near shore/geographic redundant supply base or alt parts
  • Finding new products / service providers (PPE, screening products / services, cleaning products / services)
  • Work from home strategies (system access, laptops, conferencing, office supplies, productivity)
  • Working capital / cash flow strategies
  • Service issues due to supplier layoffs and social distancing
  • Forecasting in times of uncertainty
  • Building a flexible labor strategy (Strategic Workforce Management)


Our next PERT Townhall will be on May 19, 2020 at 1-3 CDT where we will have a similar session from OMNIA on how they are working with their Suppliers through these turbulent times – which we’re sure many of you are having to deal with on an hourly basis???
