Supplier Selection Report
Assume  you are chief executive officer (CEO) of a company that will develop  products used in laboratory testing. Together with your chief science  officer (CSO), you will need to develop a supplier base to deliver the  following materials:
· Muscles from turkey legs
· Hearts from pigs
· Alligator claws
· Corn leaves
· Kelp from Chesapeake Bay
These  materials must be purchased in raw form as personnel at your company  will process the materials in a proprietary way based on customer  requirements for your products. Describe how you will (a) locate  suppliers who can provide these materials reliably and in high volumes,  (b) assess the potential suppliers’ capabilities to meet your  requirements, (c) determine the evaluative criteria for the suppliers  once they begin to deliver. Also, discuss the benefits and costs of  buying from multiple suppliers or establishing a contract for long-term  supply. Make sure you rely on resources from the first three weeks of  the class.
