TMC Sourcing Toolkit

Sourcing Travel Management Company (TMC) services is not simply about issuing an RFP. Rather, it is a process and a journey - the process entails developing a strategy and plan for your travel program and the role the TMC will play executing on the plan.

In order to support your TMC sourcing efforts, GBTA has put together a toolkit to help guide you in sourcing through planning, strategy development, soliciting bidders, deciding on the supplier that best fits your criteria and setting your program up for success during implementation and beyond.

The links on the left will lead you to the various tools and templates by process phase within this Sourcing toolkit. The vast majority of these tools use Microsoft Excel and are designed to be edited to fit your needs. One size does not fit all - The key to success is in customizing your planning and executing on the steps to achieve your corporations objectives.
