Abstract : Two methods for prioritizing secondary items for price reviews were examined. A sample of secondary items from a previous price scrub were ranked by their dollar value of demand and by their expected savings based on historical price stub data. The dollar value of demand ranking was the preferred method due to the cost effectiveness of using only currently available data. The price scrub results by Federal Supply Classification (FSC) prioritizing were determined. Keywords: Price; Secondary items; Cost effectiveness.
