German term or phrase: Aushandeln von Projekt- und Objektnachlässen
In a description of how one company saved money by "gezielte Einkaufsaktion" the initiatives were listed and one of them was:

Aushandeln von Projekt-und Objektnachlässen

"arriving at agreement on abatements and rebates for projects and materials"? My English sounds a bit stilted to me; any suggestions for improvement gratefully received.

negotiation of trade discounts on projects and materials
Explanation:
You were right, you wouldn't really say abatements and rebates. Trade discounts apply between companies on products and materials and is a bit more concise.

Thanks very much-that's almost what I chose, finally settling for "reaching agreements on project and material-related trade discounts". I think "reaching agreement" conveys the idea of aushandeln while verhandeln for me would be negotiation.

Your help is much appreciated!
