Chapter 11 - IT Procurement Planning and Strategic Sourcing

11.9 Outcomes of IT procurement planning

IT procurement planning may drive different expected results such as:

  • Reduction in the number of overall contract awards
  • Understanding and managing total cost of ownership
  • More purchasing options-lease vs. buy
  • Data-driven decision making
  • Improved risk mitigation prior to award
  • More identification of opportunities where suppliers can add value
  • Increased understanding of the IT industry-procurement staff become more knowledgeable about supply chains and costs.
  • Performance driven contracts-data driven supplier performance (i.e., automated and electronic tracking systems).

Improved relationships with suppliers-more communication, face-to-face meetings (quarterly review sessions).
