Fresenius Vamed

Procurement management at Fresenius Vamed consists of the following activities:

  • Project business: planning and construction, e. g. turnkey construction projects, and building utilities. VAMED also executes projects as general contractor, including work by other companies.
  • Service business: Operation, technical facility management, and replacement parts sourcing for international health care facilities. Contracts in the service business are mostly long term. The main items sourced are, for instance, medical devices and equipment, supplies, and services such as laundry, maintenance, and cleaning.

The VAMED sourcing platform systematically identifies synergies for customers from the project and service activities. Considerable cost-cutting potentials are tapped through bidding competitions and framework agreements for several assignments, e. g. bundling cleaning services and energy supplies. Emphasis is placed on so-called life-cycle cost. In its sourcing decisions VAMED takes account of the total cost of materials and products over the entire life cycle, i. e. acquisition cost, servicing, maintenance, and replacement parts. The strategic aim is to procure the optimum product for the customer at the best price.

In the case of public-private partnership (PPP) models with public-sector clients, consideration is also given to local value added, i. e. sourcing materials and services locally.

Based on the EFQM (European Foundation for Quality Management) model, we set targets for the procurement management process, such as customer satisfaction, the percentage of framework agreements, and supplier ratings.
