The procurement audit starts with an assessment of the “as is” situation:
a financial analysis of your P&L
a description of your procurement organisation
your supplier relationships model
your existing tools
your existing procedures
We will start to assess your supplier portfolio per spend category with the objective to draw a clear picture of your existing purchases: spend, volume, strategic, sensitivity, etc.
A cost and risk analysis will follow:
design to cost
on-going spend or one-off spend (e.g. project cost)
litigation and performances
Definition of the action plan:
priority / urgent
uncover new potential and speed of execution
process implementation and software roll-out
roles and responsibilities definition and relationship governance
An audit of some of your suppliers (critical or challenging) can be launched with the support of our resources. We will propose an action plan and a check list to tackle your challenges.
Compliance / Regulatory / Policy
Costbrokers supports you in all your regulatory projects related to Suppliers Management and to Outsourcing business models. Costbrokers helps you meeting new regulatory requirements including GDPR regulations or revision of the Swiss LPD.
The GDPR introduces new obligations for companies: inform the persons concerned of their rights, specific warranties in case of data transfer to a third country, the right to portability or reporting in case of profiling.
It is also a new practice to now take into account the data protection from the product design / service (“privacy by design”). Concretely, companies will have to focus from the R&D to the protection of personal data via an impact analysis. Each data processing should be systematically described, the related risks should be evaluated and if possible mitigated.
From a technical point of view, companies must have processes in place to detect defaults, alert the supervisory authority or the person concerned and take corrective action.
