Procurement Diagnosis

A procurement diagnosis or baseline assessment is the starting point of a procurement improvement project, to understand the current situation of a procurement organisation. This diagnosis includes a financial- and a qualitative analysis. The objective of the procurement diagnosis is providing insight, identifying the current situation, setting objectives and improvement potential and how to get there.

Areas of Interest are mostly: The procurement function; Human Resources; Procurement policy; Objectives and improvement potential; Potential of automating procurement processes and safeguarding in the organisation;

Bareki procurement diagnostic provides management with a concise report detailing how procurement is managing this expenditure and where improvements can be made. Where procurement performance is concerned, some organisations rely purely on financial metrics to understand the current situation, but financial metrics alone rarely show the full picture.

Our Diagnostics include:

  • World Class Procurement - How does your procurement function compare against our World Class Procurement benchmark? A full function review.
  • Procurement Health check - How effective is your procurement department? A review of the procurement department, and related departments, from a process and operational viewpoint. Our detailed report includes a comprehensive opportunity analysis that identifies where the ‘quick wins’ might lie.
  • Contract Review - Are your major contracts delivering the ’value for money’ they should? Are you vulnerable to supply chain risk? Our full contract review looks at various aspects of the buyer/seller agreement from value for money through to termination rights.
