What is tactical procurement?

Tactical procurement activities result in business processes receiving the right goods and services. This involves handling the procurement process from the specification of needs to negotiation and contracting. Other important aspects include the management, control and assessment of supplier relationships as well as continuous improvement of supplier performance. 

Looking at the role of procurement in an organisation from the point of view of costs and qualities, the most important activity at the tactical level is the specification of needs. Once the organisation’s needs in terms of goods and services have been established, you can get started with the selection process. This selection is based on clear criteria. The negotiations follow, and then the contract.

Examples of tactical procurement activities:

  • Performance of cost-price analysis
  • Selection of suppliers
  • Carrying out of contract negotiations
  • Conclusion of contracts
  • Evaluation and improvement of supplier performances
