What are procurement advisory services?

Before we get into the benefits of procurement advisory services, we should cover what these services are. For those who are asking themselves, ‘what is procurement?’, the process is simply where an organisation buys goods or services from another. The process of procuring these goods or services, however, can be drawn out and tricky. For the best value for money (and various other reasons) it is best to seek the advice of Procurement Specialists. They can offer services that range from some basic advisory to full procurement management.

How can procurement advisory services help you?

Now, let’s discuss how procurement advisory services can benefit your organisation.

1.     You will be guided by experienced experts

One of the biggest benefits of procurement advisory services is that these experts have the experience. If you are new to procurement, it will likely feel intense. There is a lot to cover, after all. Having an expert guide you through it is, without a doubt, a huge advantage.

2.     They know what to look for when evaluating suppliers

When it comes to the tender evaluation process, you may feel swamped. Having several suppliers to compare can be stressful. With procurement advisory services, they can support you through the entire process. They can even award the contract on your behalf. They know what a winning bid looks like and how to recognise the best suited supplier. This way, you can rest assured that your chosen supplier is the best for the job.

3.     They can help you to produce tendering documents

When you need to procure services, you can send out an invitation to tender (ITT) or request for proposal (RFP). These tender documents will feature every minute detail about the work you require. It should also feature various questions for suppliers to showcase their knowledge and experience. You want to use these documents to narrow down the perfect supplier, so they need to be done thoroughly. When you receive procurement advisory services, they can help you ensure the quality of your documents.

Choosing your procurement advisory services firm or consultant

Now that you know more about procurement advisory services, you may wonder how to choose the right one. This is a crucial stage in ensuring you are happy with the expert(s) you work with. Here are a few tips for what to look for when choosing a sourcing consulting firm or Strategic Sourcing Consultant:

  • Make sure that they can back up their claims. If they are experts, they will be able to show you examples of their experience and success.
  • You can ask for examples of previous work with clients in a similar size and sector to your own.
  • Ensure the firm has all the right credentials.
  • Meet them to get a feel of their attitude towards you and the project.
  • Review their methodology and compare it with your requirements.
  • See what details and information they will need from you. This will help you to avoid delays.
  • See if the firm or consultant is independent. This will determine whether they are biased with recommending specific solutions.
