This is the third article exploring the nature of category-based procurement. The first two articles covered Bespoke and Project-based procurement. Focusing by category allows optimisation of the supply chain for that specific category. Leveraging the knowledge and expertise of category specialists to develop a specific strategic approach to each category.
Project-based procurement occurs when there is a specific project activity and goal. This may be a project that repeats at regular intervals or it may be a one-off project.
The project could include volume purchases, small purchase volumes, standard items, specification of unique one-off items and tailoring of items based on individual projects. All included within any one project activity.
There are a lot of articles around on what Procurement needs to do; how Procurement needs to change; and how technology will fundamentally change Procurement.

This article summarises, as a table, technology areas that impact on Procurement that you might need to investigate.
