Research Topics:

The debates over centralised and de-centralised procurement, and the linked issue of how much purchasing authority can and should be delegated to end users and budget holders, have been going on for years. In fact, every organisation needs to look at its specific needs, and indeed the right approach may differ across different spend categories.

And technology is now helping procurement to square the circle – giving stakeholders real authority, whilst retaining the most important aspects of central control that help procurement drive value and performance.
