Full-fledged vendor management offices are not one-person, fly-by-night operations. They take planning, resources, staffing and committment.
These job descriptions were developed by a CIO Executive Council member from a large company for use in staffing its vendor management office. They cover the following positions:
- Manager of the VMO
- Vendor relationship manager
- Vendor analyst
- Senior vendor analyst
- VMO Roles and Responsibilities
In addition, there are skill expectations checklists with a rating system for vendor manager and analyst positions, which cover skills such as negotiation, collaboration and communication.
