Loading the Supplier Dice
Published May 2020
In the case of a procurement process, loading the dice refers to taking actions that ensure a particular supplier is either always favoured, selected, or is at least shortlisted.
There are four areas where supplier loading occurs:
- Eliminating or reducing competition
- Biased supplier selection
- Biased Contract negotiation or management
- Low bid with the knowledge that over or false payments can be extracted
In this whitepaper we will explore each in a bit more detail.
