Sourcing & Procurement

Protiviti’s professionals conduct spend and procurement assessments to assist clients in identifying areas of financial leakage, strategic sourcing and process inefficiencies, as well as assessing overall procure-to-pay processes and capabilities. 

In our experience, organizations can achieve a return on investment (ROI) of up to five times or greater by identifying opportunities to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), leveraging purchasing power, recovering overpayments and improving vendor performance.

Our professionals help companies achieve these results through the identification and recovery of financial leakage (e.g., overpayments or incorrect charges, duplicate payments, lost discounts and unused credits), specific and prioritized recommendations for process improvement, spend categorization and visibility, a strategic sourcing road map, and the identification of cost reduction opportunities.
