Procurement is at the centre of every organization: teams are required to work across departments to source vendors, goods, and services that will provide the best value for the best price, while fulfilling requirements. But all too often, departments become siloed, and department personnel view the procurement process as bureaucratic and inefficient. The result is an increase in rogue spending and a reluctance to involve procurement, which can lead to rushed or delayed spending decisions.
