Notes from Manager: We already have a Buyer, so we aren’t looking for a purchasing agent. I’m envisioning a person to act as the point of contact between Engineering, our Buyer, and outside vendors. They would take the technical information from the Engineers, figure out the appropriate vendors to contact, help qualify non-TDI vendors, send RFQ’s, field vendor questions, make quote summaries, and provide the required inputs for our Buyer to place the order. They would also track parts, follow up with vendors on status, receive the parts, and physically control our engineering inventory. Ideally, they would be proficient enough with Oracle to create purchase order requests and place small orders. And they have to be very organized and aggressive so we don’t have schedule slips.
