How do I use an outsourcing provider?
The answer is: it is up to you. Some organizations choose to completely outsource their procurement departments to a dedicated procurement company. However, this is not possible for most customers due to the complexity of their business and the goods/services that are purchased to support it.
Every organization is unique, and there is no single answer that works for any organization.

Procurement Service Providers can be used in any of the following scenarios: replace your current procurement department, supplement your current resources in strategic or non-strategic product areas, provide electronic tools to make your procurement department more efficient, or simply as consultants for implementing best practices. Keep in mind that you do not have to outsource your entire procurement network, it is usually best to select a target area, and gain top-level support within your organization before contracting with a Procurement Service Provider.
