 The Challenge
Accessing and analyzing small spend-data is an irksome imposition on businesses managers, even to those that are serious about efficient spending. Small and ad-hoc purchases often occur informally and at prices that could be considerably lower.
The challenge with controlling small spends has been that the procurement cycle and vendor-pool need to be matched with the needs that businesses may have across departments and branches. The management often becomes numb to the inefficiencies in these procurements.
Further, the larger enterprise and governments have an obligation to expand to smaller vendors and enhance gender and ethnic diversity.
Solution in Action
A key government agency at a large US city in found that the various departments in the city annually spend in excess of $ 10 million in ad-hoc purchases of products and services that are smaller than $ 3,000 per instance. The city managers saw value in this spend management proposition and implemented the solution, which was planned for ad-hoc purchases of $ 3.000 or less.
"A ‘bid’ for 6 cases of photocopying paper was entered into the browser interface of the police precinct at 3 PM; the "special requirement" was that the paper should be delivered by 11 AM the next day. The system sent out the email bids to all the 17 vendors registered for the item, the bid automatically closed at 4 PM, with 11 responses. The administrator selected the lowest bid, the vendor and was automatically notified and the inventory was delivered at 10.30 AM at the precinct".
A representative at the department commented "we could have gone to the stationary chain at the corner, but who wants to volunteer to carry 6 cases of copy paper on dollies? This purchase saved us a dollar a ream, and the time… and the aggravation!"
