Once the procurement department has been set up within a company and a general policy has been established, it is vitally important that a comprehensive procurement strategy is put in place.

Aligned with the company's strategy, this procurement strategy helps to increase the company's competitiveness and flexibility.

However, procurement strategies are not always well received because they are often seen as difficult to implement.

Nevertheless, finding and retaining innovative suppliers; setting up framework agreements and e-procurement solutions; and digitalising data are all concrete examples that give companies a real competitive advantage.
