Procurement

Many public and private sector organisations have made big investments in procurement initiatives to reduce supplier cost, improve service delivery and reduce risk.  Improving procurement performance in volatile times is an ongoing challenge.

Our Procurement services

Procurement transformation

Organisations undertake procurement transformation for many reasons. Typically, the goal is to improve one or more of cost, risk or service.

At Litmus, we work with clients to deliver sustained bottom-line benefits.  We do this through a fundamental shift in underlying procurement capabilities, systems and processes to improve the value delivered.  We have a proven track record working with leading Australian, Asia-Pacific and global private and public sector organisations, where we have delivered significant business improvements.    

Litmus has an integrated set of strategic procurement methodologies that enable organisations to significantly enhance their procurement performance.

Our strategic focus, commercial acumen and pragmatic approach ensure we tailor our services to the unique environment of each client, delivering value quickly.

Supplier and spend analytics

Identifying the benefits that can be unlocked from supplier spend through strategic sourcing and supplier relationship management is central to procurement transformation.  A rigorous business case must also be built to underpin investment decisions and benefits delivery.

At Litmus, we combine rigorous procurement spend analytics, deep understanding of internal and external financial community expectations and our extensive procurement experience to set aspirational and realistic delivery targets and implementation plans.

We also bring our proven sourcing methodologies and processes to support our clients. We blend our understanding of our client’s business and specific requirements with an approach that aligns stakeholders and their business needs throughout the process to deliver sustainable, measurable benefits.
