Factors that will drive procurement expenses in the IT consulting industry

Insights into category management strategies that will help buyers optimize their procurement spend

Optimizing procurement spend does not stop at getting the product from suppliers at reduced rates. Most of the buyers in the IT consulting industry fail to realize that an impactful supplier relationship management is crucial to create avenues to save costs in the long run and also to facilitate effective category management in a market that is characterized by price dynamism.

Engage in long-term contracts with suppliers

Buyers are advised to enter into long-term strategic partnerships with IT consulting suppliers using the retainership model to gain value-added benefits such as complimentary services based on the duration of engagement and nature of relationship shared with suppliers. Long-term engagements facilitate mutually beneficial outcomes, as they encourage suppliers to work on a risk/reward sharing basis while buyers maximize their value from their procurement spend.

Design strong KPIs to evaluate suppliers’ performance

Buyers should define parameters to assess the performance of suppliers. This will help them to identify inefficiencies and enhance the quality of services. The average time taken to identify and mitigate risks, average post-project evaluation score, the percentage of required reports delivered on time, percentage of resource utilized, and percentage of the variance between budget and actual procurement spend are some key KPIs for buyers.
