Before beginning your "assessment", let's outline the scope of what is being covered in this area. For the purposes of this exercise, we are defining the purchasing process as follows:
The "upstream" processes of Purchase-to-Pay (P2P).
Indirect goods and services - everything your organisation purchases to support operating the business, not including raw materials or products purchased in high volume for manufacturing or resale:
Routine commodity items such as office or maintenance supplies.
More technical items such as computer equipment or software where an expert buyer may be involved in addition to the employee who needs the item.
Capital items and specialised services (note: normally, the full process for these items will also include processes covered by sourcing and supplier engagement).
From: employee purchase request or requisition.
Through: authorisation (or denial).
To: purchase order placement.
