Center-led collaboration powers Harris Corp.’s strategic sourcing initiatives

from purchasing.com

Like many companies, communications firm Harris Corp. has various business divisions focused on building their own products. But having buyers and procurement professionals spread across those divisions doesn’t mean they cannot share information and best practices. To achieve the “best of both worlds” Harris has implemented a “direct and centralized” procurement organizational model.

At Harris, there are four major divisions: Government Communications Systems, RF Communications, Broadcast Communications and Harris Stratex Networks. Each division has its own head of procurement and its own supply chain management organization, which includes sourcing, manufacturing, distribution and service.
