Who’s in Control of your Purchasing Process?

Procuring goods and services is typically a significant area of spend – for most organisations. Yet whether you are a public or private company, for or not for profit, managing this spend and the processes around it is typically not something a great deal of time is spent on. The concept of a PO might be foreign to your business, even though you have a pretty clear policy defined somewhere on who is allowed to spend what sort of money for what purpose, how expenditure should be approved, and so on. Indeed, there may even be an external audit requirement – apart from just plain good business sense – to have those authorisation flows adhered to.

The key to efficient, controlled spending lies in the ability to empower staff with requisitioning responsibilities whilst ensuring that contracted buying agreements and spending limits are enforced and that requisitions are routed to the relevant individuals for approval in a timely manner.
