For New Purchasing Offices or New Procedures - Review the Stake Holders and Their Needs


Are you working with a new office or are you dealing with new procedures?

If so, it’s important to conduct a survey of who your customers are and, more importantly, to define what their needs or abilities are. Once you have that information you can begin establishing a workflow based on the procurement office’s internal requirements are and the needs of the customers. This video reviews how to create a vendor data base, and how to draft internal forms and internal controls. Our speaker also discusses the importance of reviewing technologies available to customers and procurement staff.
