Foundation Medicine is a molecular information company dedicated to a transformation in cancer care in which treatment is informed by a deep understanding of the genomic changes that contribute to each patient’s unique cancer. C&W Services has supported Foundation Medicine’s three-building campus in Cambridge, MA since 2018.
C&W Services partners closely with Foundation Medicine, bringing continuous improvement to its facility operations aligned with Foundation Medicine’s business goals and objectives. We recently undertook a project to maximize savings across various procurement categories without compromising the quality of service to Foundation Medicine’s employees. Our on-site procurement teams are supported by C&W’s corporate procurement managers who help identify areas where vendor pricing can be reduced. As a result, we can leverage C&W Service’s national pricing agreements and preferred vendor network, while also considering local relationships that provide excellent service from sub-contractors and suppliers.
- Our initial analysis showed that C&W Services receives significantly better pricing in several key procurement areas
- Industrial gases
- Janitorial products
- Lab coats/ Uniforms
- Office Supplies
- Interior plant design
- Pest Control
- AEDs and First Aid
- As a result, we expanded the scope of procurement to additional areas and achieved passthrough savings such as a projected $150,000 in savings for Lab Coat services over the life of our current contract.
