Sourcing & Procurement


Sourcing & Procurement

Procurement in 2030 will look very different from today. This radical and rapid change is transforming how organisations source and procure the various goods and services they need to operate. As a result, new strategies, skills, knowledge, and tools are emerging to address today’s and tomorrow’s shifting challenges and opportunities.

Deloitte’s Sourcing & Procurement practice has a track record of tackling these challenges and enabling our clients to deliver and sustain measurable and impactful results. We have an end-to-end proposition portfolio covering diagnostics, strategy and operating model development, sourcing delivery, transformation, SSC / BPO and technology advisory, addressing the true challenges clients are facing today and providing a holistic answer and sustainable solutions. We support our clients’ aspirations by partnering to create and execute a tailored strategy through execution approaches that consider short versus long-term value trade-offs, knowledge transfer, culture change and capability building.

Eliminate blind spots – Extend your reach

Addressing challenges involves seeing things from a different perspective. This requires a comprehensive approach to defining and executing a procurement strategy aligned to the organisation’s overall strategy. Organisations need to understand the underlying behaviours that drive spending, so they can address their root causes and become nimble in managing their bottom line.

With strong governance over spend, a company saves money and improves margin. A coherent supplier relationship strategy defines the optimum approach for supplier segmentation, supports supplier performance management and drives supplier innovation.
