Procurement Business Reviews
One way to recognize what needs improvement in Procurement Services or a department process is with dialog on a regular basis to understand where departments are having difficulties interacting with procurement systems or processes. Our Outreach Program includes a department business review that focuses on pain points and opportunities to streamline department processes. We bring data in the form of a Departmental Dashboard Report, in addition to system and process specialists from Procurement Services to listen and problem solve collaboratively.
