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 benefits, and collaborate effectively across the organisation and strategic suppliers.

OCM, with its strong background in governance and probity, understand the policies and legislative framework agencies and organisations are required to work within and assists organisations in navigating and adapting to these to optimise their organisational agility.

The ‘Plan, Source, Manage’ approach helps organisations procure smarter by understanding their spend profile in order to make well-informed decisions about what they buy, when they buy and who they buy from. Organisations want procurement systems and processes in place that will make doing business simple, easy and more attractive to key suppliers, whilst ensuring integrity, transparency and probity.

Increasingly the challenge of managing ‘business as usual’ with other competing priorities such as Procurement Accreditation, major systems implementation and large organisational change has seen agencies and organisations turn to OCM for assistance in managing their procurement activities. Similarly, organisations and agencies are seeking OCM’s assistance to focus strategically and identify opportunities to procure faster and smarter.
