Dear All,
Iam Suresh Anandasayanam and currently engaged with a project where I need to create a templates.
The vendor in discussion is a "Staff Augmentation" vendor who will provide staff at our premises for software programming/coding and testing.

Request you to provide a suitable template for -

1. Measuring vendor performance (or rating)
2. Standard Dashboards to display performance
3. KPIs

Thanks and looking forward for your kind support

Re: Staff Augmentation Vendor (Supplier) Rating (Performance Evaluation)

Is this a 'Temporary Worker' company which will provide staff at your premises for software programming/coding and testing? Or are they providing 'Full Time' employees?

Marc,

From what I have learned, this appears to be an organization that provides temporary programmers.

Reference:
Staff Augmentation
Does your organization have an ongoing, long-term IT function or support activity with fluctuating resource demands? Or perhaps your organization has an intensive, short-term project needing supplemental IT staff to work on-site?

Re: Staff Augmentation Vendor (Supplier) Rating (Performance Evaluation)

Hello,
Thanks for your quck responses.

To brief you more -

This vendor is in a long term contract with our company. The resources will be in the full time role of the vendor but will be placed at our premises (dedicated) to do software coding/testing. The salary will be paid by the vendor directly to the employees.

He has to take the requirements (like skill/experience/exposure/job descriptions) from us and then either place his existing resources or recruit new members to execute our projects.

We provide him with either a forecast or one-off requirements. Currently the vendor has around 200 of his resources working full time in our premises.

For this we are looking at a very practical metric and dashboard which will give the management a overview of his performance month-on-month.

Hope Iam clear with the requirements. Thanks for your help in advance

It depends on what you're trying to evaluate, what your expectations are, and whether the expectations have been fully understood and accepted by the supplier. What do you want from them? How well do they consistently provide it? There might be such things as:
  • The supplier's ability to provide workers in a timely manner
  • The supplier's ability to provide workers who can do the job in question with a minimum of in situ training
  • The quality of work being done by the temporary programmers
Along with potentially many other criteria, depending on your requirements. It's doubtful that a cookie-cutter template supplied by someone else will be of much value to you. Sit down with the "stakeholders" in your company, and decide what the expectations are. Then translate those expectations into written requirements, and review them with the supplier. Once you've done that, you won't have to wonder about what to measure--you'll simply review periodically against the written requirements.

Re: Staff Augmentation Vendor (Supplier) Rating (Performance Evaluation)

Hello Suresh,

In addition to Jim Wynne's excellent post, some comments.

Below are a few actual examples of what some of them promise (or at least claim what they commit themselves to.)

  • Meet or exceed the Clients', Candidates', and Staff's expectations.
  • Service the client in a professional manner that sets us apart as a leader in this industry.
  • Establish long term partnership relationships with our clients, candidates and staff.
  • Provide complete satisfaction for our clients, candidates, and staff by being flexible, but never compromising the relationship.
  • Be known as a company whose foundation truly reflects professionalism, integrity, a spirit of excellence, hard work and respect to our clients, candidates and staff.
As you can see, most of the language used is subjective. You need to sort through all this and select what's truly important to you and your organization (and its Customers). You could ask how they actually measure this themselves....you'll raise some eyebrows I'm sure, but what the heck....

The objectives and associated measurements should be developed and agreed upon between you and the IT staffing agency. Now you have a set of mutual acceptable KPI's for ongoing supplier performance evaluation.

Hope this helps.

Stijloor.

IT Staff Augmentation Model:
After reading the comparison between the three delivery models, it would seem that in an ideal world, your company would build everything in-house. However, due to the costs involved with hiring, onboarding and then retaining team members between projects, the best alternative is the IT staff augmentation model.

You hire qualified and leading employees, top talent, from an IT staff augmentation firm to provide you an edge to meeting your project goals.
Throughout the duration of your project, technical or non-technical resources work alongside your internal staff. In-fact they can also work remotely from their home or a workspace overseas.

Understanding the IT Staff Augmentation process will help you decide whether to augment staff or not.

To remain competitive in a saturated marketplace, you need top-drawer talent that can keep a pulse on all industry trends.
Both employers and employees find it flexible and feasible to engage on a project basis. The flexibility to ramp up multiple, even dozens of employees at a time is an attractive prospect.

Agreed. There is a set of recruiting techniques. But in the IT segment, in fact, you hire people for outsourcing. The only difference is that you directly contact staff augmentation companies to increase staff without an intermediary in the person of a recruiting agency. You can check comprasion list in Cleveroad blog.
