Traditional tendering is one dimensional and offers little price discovery beyond the price for a standard and relatively fixed offering.  The cornerstone of Synaptic Decisions’  approach to Value Based Sourcing is our Menu Tender©.  Bidders compete on the basis of several dimensions and price options, flexibilities and buyer and seller preferences.  Bidders also expose their risk preferences and prices for holding risk.   Menu Tenders © achieve breakthrough price discovery and combinatorial analysis is conducted across an array of potential contract variations to ensure discovery of the optimal deal structure.
