Procurement Consulting

Gibson Procurement Consulting services aid our clients in improving their processes for acquiring the raw materials used in producing their goods. Through a thorough review of the process and analysis of the relevant data, we provide a plan for our clients to achieve their goals and help them execute the plan.

There are many objectives when enlisting a procurement consultant:

  • Reduce cost
  • Improve the quality of materials
  • Make logistics more efficient
  • Improve the supplier relationship
  • Diversification of suppliers
  • Update or implement technology

Based on the goals of an organization, improved procurement processes may serve additional goals. While cost reduction is a common objective, fulfilling the broader business objectives often involves other targets.

  • People only see what they are prepared to see

Improved Procurement Processes

The procurement process must evolve. From global economic changes to technological advances to human resources dynamics, opportunities to improve a procurement program. Failing to leverage these available advancements will make a company less competitive domestically and globally.

Gibson employs an 11-step phase-gate process to analyze our clients’ procurement programs and provide strategies and plans. Our process ensures we provide unique plans designed to achieve each client’s objectives.

Procurement Consulting in Practice

For consulting services to have value, they must see success when implemented. We work closely with our clients to ensure they have the support, tools,  people, and training needed to reap every dollar of value.

As in this example, a $13B company with over 3,500 suppliers across a multi-sector portfolio, their industrial manufacturing sector knew there had to be savings and efficiency to gain. They turned to our procurement consultants to find the answers.

There were two outputs from the review. First, they saved a significant amount on their supply costs (about $133M.) Second, and perhaps more importantly for the long run, Gibson helped them restructure their procurement program and implement organizational transformation, allowing them to continue to improve their processes going forward.

Procurement Success Metrics

Gibson defines success as actual, sustainable financial results in our client’s procurement measured by the bottom-line impact in terms of COGS reduction (direct materials), SG&A (indirect materials), and/or margin improvement. Our procurement consulting clients measure the results themselves to eliminate any confusion on actual, realized results.
