PROCUREMENT CHALLENGES FOR ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS
With so many departments operating at the same institution, all with different procurement requirements, the need for improved supply chain solutions and processes has never been greater. Mandates often require staff to purchase the cheapest materials possible.
91% of spending goes to top 20% of vendors
Due to time constraints, little effort goes into finding the best materials, from the best vendors, at the best price.
