Responsibilities

Procurement is responsible for ensuring that all of our non-construction spend is sourced, managed and transacted at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.  This traditionally involves reviewing each area of spend or category through a Strategic Sourcing Methodology.  To facilitate this work, the Procurement team heavily leverages the outputs of our annual Spend Analysis process.  The execution and management of this process (data gathering, consolidation, cleansing, reporting and analyzing) is the primary function for our summer intern.

 

  • Gather spend data files
  • Cleanse, report, categorize, analyze and document the process into a repeatable set of instructions to be leveraged for future years

Qualifications

Our ideal candidate will be a rising junior or senior with the following skills:

 

  • BA or BS, ideally in STEM, Quantitative or Business
  • Minimum 3.2/4.0 GPA
  • Strong data skills and experience working with large datasets (> 100,000 rows)
  • Microsoft Access preferred, but Excel acceptable if the right experience
  • Must be comfortable working with large sets of data
  • Authorization to work permanently in the U.S.
