What we Do
We Provide an Array of Different Procurement Services
Don’t have the time to manage that strategic procurement activity? We can help. We can also manage your contracts for you as an outsourced activity.
Over 25% of procurement failures are due to poorly developed and written specifications and evaluation criteria. Getting that right is a specialty of ours.
Contract Reviews and Audits
Contracts or Contractors not performing like they should? Maybe you are getting to the end of a contract and are wondering as to the best approach. We can help.
At Procurement Associates, No Client is Too Big or Small
From on the spot consulting to managing large strategic outsourcing procurement, we can handle it. Service level agreements and strategic contracting is a specialty, but we are just as comfortable giving a small local council a hand with its routine work.
Don’t Let the Complexities of Contract Management Cost You Any more
We offer Contract Management as a Service. This allows you to focus on the job, whilst we take care of the paperwork and reporting.
Our system is simple to use, elegant and functional, perfect for the smaller procurement team that doesn’t have the time for complexity. Ask us for a demonstration!
