Like other business functions before it, the procurement (purchasing & supply) department has also seen its fair share of modernisation and improvement initiatives – mainly around the people and the tools – to improve capability but ultimately to save £££ in an organisations spending budget. The function of the procurement department is seeing change, in areas such as new or upgrades to systems ( eProcurement and e-invoicing), changes in procurement strategies being adopted to improve efficiency through process changes and procurement outsourcing.
