How we help

Our solutions

Organisational design & implementation

We review and work on your organisation's strategy to establish and agree a shared vision, with goals and objectives which include a detailed diagnostic of spend.

Our teams complete a review and maturity assessment of your organisation’s structure, resulting in a detailed target operating model for a new service with key implementation milestones. These will include clear roles and responsibilities, governance and processes to guarantee successful performance.

Process & policy build

We work with you to review your process and policy documentation, and update these in line with current regulations and best practice. 

We put effective and logical processes at the foundation of your procurement function to ensure legislative compliance and promote understanding across your organisation. We help you devise a procurement policy specific to your needs -rather than a generic policy - to enable all departments involved in procurement to be governed by the same rules and guidelines.

Talent development & recruitment

Key to successful procurement transformation is a specialist, expert workforce who can advise and support stakeholders whilst continually striving for best practice and improving ways of working.

We focus on the continuous development of your internal procurement professionals with upskilling, networking and market awareness. This not only helps the business, but also supports retention, minimising recruitment costs. If you need to benefit from external recruitment, we can help you source specific subject matter expertise.

Environmental, social & governance (ESG)

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) diagnostic supports clients to benchmark current maturity against key standards and develop realistic goals aligned to business objectives.

We help you monitor ESG performance (including carbon reporting) with bespoke business intelligence (BI) tools and support you to deliver your ESG objectives via a wide range of procurement interventions, including smarter tendering and contracting, supplier relationship management, policy development, and the delivery of energy-efficient projects.

Technology procurement case study

Supporting a major financial client with the procurement of transformative technology

Capita recently led a global enterprise resource planning (ERP) procurement exercise for a leading and prestigious global financial brand. This comprised taking a concept idea through to helping our client to build a transformation business case whereby they would reduce their system applications from 39 applications to one leading solution.

Our experienced technology consultants developed and delivered the market request for information and request for proposal (RFI and RFP). We achieved this by integrating every element of the process, including the stakeholders, the panel selection, the contract award and the system integration partner. We also led the implementation of the selected integrated global solution for the organisation’s finance, HR & procurement functions. 

We’re proud to have received a Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) award for the quality of our programme delivery and the outcomes achieved for our client.
