Things to consider when choosing a procurement consultant
Choosing the right procurement consultant can drastically change your procurement outcomes. We’ve provided this list to assist in your selection process of a suitable procurement consultant.
Can anyone do procurement? A lot of consultants believe that procurement is just a process, however you will find that if you use procurement specialists rather than generalists you will be able to extract maximum value for our procurements.
How do I know if a procurement consultant is sufficiently experienced to assist with my procurement? Check their work history, i.e. do they have a long list of clients? Do those clients seek the consultant for repeat work? How long have they been in business? Do they have a diverse team?
Do my procurement consultants need to have industry knowledge? Procurement is a transferrable skillset and can be industry agnostic, however you may realise more value using a consultant that has specific industry knowledge
What commercial model do I use to engage a procurement consultant? This depends on a variety of factors, i.e. the size and type of the engagement, which systems are required to be used, the level of stakeholder engagement required, and a raft of other factors. It may be a good idea to consult a procurement consultant early to determine the best commercial model for your procurement support.
Does the procurement consultant have depth of resourcing? This can be important if additional capacity is required to short timeframe procurement activities.
Is my procurement better in-house or outsourced? This can depend on the capability and capacity of your internal procurement function. Often procurement consultants are engaged to assist with overflow or where specialist skills are required for high-value or high-risk procurements.
When do you need a procurement consultant?
A procurement consultant can be engaged at any point along your procurement journey. However, it is always smart to engage a procurement consultant during early stages such as formation of the procurement strategy or in the data and market analysis phase.
Having a procurement consultant onboard early can assist you to derive maximum value from your procurement.
There can be a raft of benefits from engaging a procurement consultant early, some of which include:
- Knowledge of the supplier market
- Understanding of procurement strategies and trends
- How to integrate all data and analysis to form an optimum procurement strategy
- Development of a robust strategy that is socialised and supported by all stakeholders before implementation.
