The Procurement Life Cycle

  • Sourcing

    Selecting a supplier, known as sourcing, is the first stage of procurement. For bigger organizations this can be complex and involve RFP processes – draining time and resource. 

  • Contract

    The next stage is to arrange a contract with your chosen supplier to confirm terms and conditions and prices. Supplier contracts can leave you committed to higher prices should they fall during its terms. 

  • Procure

    The purchasing process is now properly under way, with the procurement of products from the chosen supplier. Payment is often dealt with by your company’s accounts payable team. 

  • Management

    Supplier management is all about ensuring suppliers are acting in line with your contract and that relationships between them and your company are good. This can be time-consuming.
