Dear Ms. Jade:

I am writing in response to your advertisement for the purchasing agent position at Littleton Regional Healthcare. Bringing more than a decade of hands-on experience working in the purchasing department in the healthcare field, I offer matchless expertise in operating and maintaining online procurement systems through effective leverage of modern and contemporary software.

I am awed by the reputation of Littleton Health Care as a name of quality and strongly believe that the organization can benefit a lot in terms of top-class and low-cost procurement by hiring my services.

My following competencies are reasons for you to take a closer look atthe attached resume:

• Exceptional proposal analysis and evaluation skills with track record of procuring highest quality goods in lowest possible rates.

• Well-versed in drafting and finalizing contracts with suppliers and ensuring that all legal prerequisites are fulfilled prior to agreement finalization.

• Outstanding ability to negotiate on beneficial agreement terms with vendors.

• Self-starter with strong organizational abilities.

During the past year alone, I have conducted four massive procurement-related audits. These audits resulted in stimulation and implementation of cost-effective procurement procedures throughout the company branches in the Littleton region.

Furthermore, I coached 50+ employees in procurement management and achieved 100% synchronization of the pre-award acquisition process in widespread branch offices at AXON Enterprises. 

I would like to meet with you in person to discuss the position further. Please feel free to call me at the above-mentioned number in order to communicate a meeting date and time.
