THE HOME OF THE GLOBAL SOURCING STANDARD
STANDARD ADVISORY GROUP
The Standard Advisory Group (SAG) was set up alongside the Global Sourcing Standard.
The purpose of the SAG is to ensure market intelligence and quality oversight of the Global Sourcing Standard, a unified view of global industry best practice that organisations in sourcing on both the buy side and provider side can be accredited to. The Group ratified the Standard at their inaugural meeting, held in Sofia on Wednesday 5 October.
Ongoing, the SAG will review the GSA standards and qualifications and provide advice and feedback on the quality of their content, design and practicality. The Group will meet regularly to review and advise on strategy and performance relating to GSA standards and qualifications as well as consider new proposals. They will also serve as a point of escalation for standards and qualifications users.
The SAG comprises leaders of international outsourcing associations from India, Russia, Poland, Germany, South Africa and China, as well as France, Spain, Belgium, Bulgaria, Egypt and the Nordics. In addition, several major buyers and providers of sourcing services plus advisory and research firms also sit on the committee.
