Resource: Gerald Ford CSCMP
Title: Senior Business Advisor
Period: Mar 2007 – Present

Gerald Ford and his staff have been working with McMaster University since March 2007 and created an online portal that enables McMaster to become much more efficient in managing the documentation and risk associated with dealing with hundreds of contractors.
The continued changes, updates and improvements to QCsolver have enabled McMaster to redeploy a senior purchasing staff resource. The Purchasing Department now has a senior individual working on other value-add projects versus spending a disproportionate amount of his time performing administrative functions.
