New Sourcing MembersOSD recently welcomed five new Contract Managers to the Sourcing Department, so you will notice some new names on our Contract User Guides. Our newest Sourcing members come with a wealth of experience that includes procurement, contract and project management, and related industry knowledge.

Meet the New Contract Managers

Introducing our new Contract Managers, along with their current assignments (from left to right in the featured photo):
Gustav Pearson – Medical Products, Office Furniture, Art and Instructional School Supplies
Ann-Maria Bennett – Professional Services
Shannon Malloy – IT Products and Services
David Sargeant – Fleet Products and Services
Michael Maxim – Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO)

As you would expect, our new staff will be working with awarded vendors to support their success and ensure buyer satisfaction, address buyer inquiries, and keep a keen eye open for future contract needs. Additionally, they will be working alongside their Sourcing colleagues on several ongoing process improvement projects: standardizing metrics to measure contract success, building sustainability specifications into future contracts, and improving the buyer experience.

OSD welcomes our new Sourcing members and encourages you to reach out to them with questions.
