Your efforts with MLD Hospital have paid off. The corporation has hired SMP and your staff to provide supply chain management consulting services. Your team has begun analyzing the existing processes, and you have been tasked with developing the purchasing policies and procedures with focus on ethics in the supply chain. 

Remember: From a supply chain management perspective, a company produces services or products. Clearly, MLD Hospital produces a service. This means that sourcing analysis must consider the raw materials necessary for producing this service (e.g., bandages, needles, blood, and medical equipment).

Using course materials and other resources, develop a paper for the hospital management consisting of the following sections:

  1. Discuss the importance of identifying the best      suppliers by explaining the impact of source selection on supply chain      performance.
  2. In conjunction with number 1, discuss whether the      hospital will insource or outsource its sourcing needs.
  3. Develop a high-level ethics policy for the purchasing      department at MLD Hospital, identifying general responsibilities and      prohibited behaviors. 

Please submit your assignment.
