SEVEN-STEP PROCUREMENT PROCESS
Clients engage us to implement our Seven-Step Procurement Process resulting in significant measurable hard dollar savings and soft dollar benefits (see Case Studies). The critical success factors are consistency in process, objectivity in decision-making, and ethics in execution. We give your buyers simple to use tools to streamline the process and measure the results. With our Seven-Step Procurement Process you can be assured (i) that your company has minimized the total cost of ownership of goods and services, and (ii) that your suppliers embrace you as a strategic partner committed to the interests of both parties.
Your corporate culture needs to reflect an everyday commitment to procurement excellence. This work ethic applies whether you are buying raw materials, goods for resale, or indirect goods and services. CEOs need an auditable process to ensure that employees with the responsibility for making decisions to spend the company’s money do not see their budget as a target to be exhausted. Not only should procurement professionals spend less than budget on every transaction, they must deliver the desired quality and reliability to the user. Budgets should be modified for reductions every month so these savings flow directly to the bottom-line on a dollar-for-dollar basis.
