  5. Refinement of the Supplier Rota.
    • The RSSC will look at the current setup of suppliers which is based on geographic proximity and, using delivery and supplier stats, will determine the most efficient supplier rota.
    • This part of the project will be put on hold until a decision is made about the new ILS so that supplier setup for the new system can be taken into account.
