This is by no means a complete list. Each commodity area may well have its own specific requirements. However, this area covers a number of the more general aspects.
As procurement in BOC changes, so too will this area. We welcome feedback: what aspects have you found useful and what has assisted you well?
At BOC, we are seeking to review our spend and establish high quality agreements with companies who can deliver quality products and services in a cost-effective manner.
Where we identify such suppliers, we will endeavour to consolidate suitable spend with them, so that both parties benefit from enhanced value.
Where spend is small, the processes for managing it will be efficient and effective.
