Procurement and Sourcing

There is more to procurement than cutting costs; it has significant and direct impact on bottom-line performance.

Modern procurement departments need to structure themselves to achieve the perfect mix of meeting internal needs at the best possible price and satisfying customer’s expectations. Procurement is however not just concerned with order placement, but with establishing enterprise-wide contracts, managing relationships with those suppliers and providing a conducive environment for the procurement process to thrive.
There is no one-size-fits-all way of aligning a procurement department. Some organizations align their procurement staff according to customer. Others align according to commodity. Still others align by supplier. The “best” way depends of the goals of the company.

Modern organizations are adopting management technology solutions which blend procurement with reverse auction, spend analysis, and other capabilities. The focus is on delivering measurable results aligned with organizational objectives and collaborating with suppliers to achieve a competitive advantage.
In addition, procurement departments are enlarging their role in the supply chain. Once simply just the interface for external “inputs,” procurement departments are now also expanding towards the organization’s “outputs.” This involves managing inventory, taking responsibility for logistics, and, in the future, even being a more significant part of a customer collaboration team.
