Procurement Management Indirect Procurement Management by Gemma

Procurement Management in 2019

In theory, the procurement management process includes justifying, sourcing of goods and services, ordering/ procuring, inspection and reconciliation.

If run poorly, it can result in high processing costs, maverick spend, lost or misplaced items, inefficient cycles, missed opportunities, a lack of innovation and uncontrolled or unforeseen costs. Additionally, the supplier relationships take a hit due to late payments, poor Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) and inefficient and ineffective dispute resolutions.

To prevent the loss of profit, effort and control, organisations need to integrate all procurement functions, control spend, track purchases and create an environment that enables growth. Indirect procurement outsourcing is an ideal way to go about this and to succeed with it off-the-payroll.
