Procurement Transformation

We passionately want to transform and equip your organisation to be effective and efficient so you draw out value from your suppliers. An essential role of the procurement function is to create added value in all aspects of an optimised buying process from the moment an external supply becomes an option to securing the value from suppliers and partners.


SSAPS specialises in:


Procurement Health Check Review

Using EFQM or the OGC framework we review the effectiveness of the procurement function against the needs of the business and make appropriate recommendations.

To give an indication of the strength and opportunities relating to your procurment function we offer a two-day free diagnostic.  This comprises a number of interviews with key individuals and a short report with recommendations.  Our diagnostic is based upon a hybredised EFQM model (see and is a checklist covering all aspects of a procurement function.  Use the contact page to request your free health check.
