New suppliers will need to be evaluated. Your role is to evaluate appropriate decision-making frameworks for supplier selection (25 marks). Once suppliers are selected you will need to submit a report to your line manager explaining your final selection. Discuss how you will present this information (25 marks). Another part of your role when suppliers have been selected is to manage the relationship. For example by planning and organizing all the necessary interaction between JLR and the suppliers. This role is very important for maximizing the value of the partnership between JLR and the suppliers. During that relationship critical data and information will be shared.
