Our Team:

Procuring smarter within an organisation adds value well beyond the traditional bottom line. As a strategic function, procurement can assist organisations to mitigate risk, improve outcomes, realise benefi ts, and collaborate effectively across the organisation and strategic suppliers. OCM, with its strong background in governance and probity, understands the operating environment organisations are required to work within. We assist organisations in navigating and adapting to these to optimise their organisational agility whilst meeting the agreed outcomes.

Our Approach:

OCM’s methodology includes a ‘top-down’ consultative approach with a ‘bottom-up’ transactional analytics approach. Our approach is risk-based, value focused, independent, objective and compliant with Professional Practice Standards. The pragmatic and value adding insights OCM provides through our range of services have assisted our clients to improve their processes and practices in a probity rich environment. This has led them to successfully award key supplier contracts, identify and convert savings opportunities, better strategically manage suppliers and achieve procurement accreditation.
