The NASR handles the RFP and RFQ process, from coordination of the bid package across the company and the pricing and executive approvals. They are also responsible for working with Legal to negotiate the documents required to manage the contract. After the sale is closed, their responsibilities include frequent interaction with the customer - at all levels of the organization. They must keep executives involved, maintain VAVE and cost-down initiatives, work diligently for organic growth from the customer base and present any/all opportunities to the customer to offer them savings and increase our standing. These include working with our scrap program, our hedging programs, our product management teams, directors of supply chain and technical resources as needed
