Procurement Process Management

Procurement Process Management & Procurement Process Management Consultants - When it comes to procurement process management our consultants at Ramsay Todd are the perfect partners for your business

Procurement Process Management

Procurement can be a real challenge for many businesses as it involves many different areas of work ranging from benchmarking to negotiating and resolving issues between key suppliers and customers.

At Ramsay Todd, we provide the highest level of procurement process management to ensure your business achieves the success it deserves.

Procurement Overview

The procurement management process is the first stage of outsourcing a service and is a vital component for achieving a successful and productive supplier relationship. It sets the tone of how the contract will be run and underpins the context of the service provision.


Procurement process management is one of the forms of management in which, at Ramsay Todd, we excel. Procurement process management requires a lot of experience and expertise, and it’s important to partner with the right procurement management consultant.

Procurement is defined as goods and services being acquired from a different organisation or firm. All organisations deal with this form of management at some point in the life of their business and getting it wrong, even once, can be costly.
Contractual issues, negotiating the wrong price or terms or working with a supplier who doesn’t live up to expectations are examples that can cause issues over several months or year. We help you get it right the first time.

Here are some examples of how we have helped our clients with procurement process management.

  • Market Testing
  • Benchmarking
  • Competitor evaluations
  • Tendering
  • Full FTS and non-FTS[WS1]  support
  • Mini-competition exercises
  • Specialist within a Buying Team
  • Contract Management
  • Supplier arbitration
  • Training courses for managing contracted services
  • Compliance audits

Service Specification

When it comes to procurement process management and procurement process management consultants, service specification is key. Working with a consultant that has experience understanding how to set the right service specification will help you to achieve greater success, faster.We believe the most important critical success factor of a procurement process is to create a comprehensive specification of what the service needs to deliver. We support clients with this by evaluating current service levels and speaking to stakeholders to understand what they think the service should provide. We then check this with the budget holder and, working closely with our clients, create a very clear picture of what the Tenderers need to bid for.
Because we have worked in the catering industry for over 20 years to a senior level, we know how to deliver soft services. We understand what Tenderers need from clients to produce a realistic and quantifiable tender response, which provides the backbone of the contract once awarded.


We work with procurement departments as a specialist to provide the specification, and this has proved particularly valuable for our Government and Local Authority clients. We can work within internal guidelines, whilst ensuring the service can actually be delivered. All our work strives for sustainable procurement practices.

Managing the various elements requires experience and expertise which is why it’s recommended to hire procurement process management consultants such as Ramsay Todd.
