Most companies are now considering the use of contingent workforce rather than build in-house capabilities. Traditionally, procurement sees cost saving opportunity within workforce management, while the HR function perceives it as a talent opportunity.

Legacy Logistics provides a third party contingent workforce services that are flexible and custom configured to meet your specific needs. We provide a range of highly qualified and skilled contingent workforce in procurement, stores management, park yards, IT, sales, among others.

Procurement Capacity Assessment

This is an audit over view of the general functionality or the working knowledge of the people involved in procurement or handling procurement related works or any other persons in a role related to use of funds and has direct impact on procurement in order to ensure there’s value for money. Several departments are considered; Procurement, Accounts, and Logistics among others. The overall risk assessment shall be rated in the categories of high, medium and low and then recommendations shall be given accordingly. While assessing much focus is drawn to areas like organisation and staffing, procurement policies and procedures in place to delivery or execution point taking note of all the documentations used plus the parties involved.

We also review the capacity of implementing partners in handling procurement efficiently.

Development of Procurement Procedures & Documentations

The most important part of procurement is in the area of Procedures, Documentations, and Reporting because for anything to start or arise, a document must be drawn and report issued. This shows how procurement is a central part of an organisation that must be handled carefully and by people who know what to do lest value for money is lost. LLA helps you develop this complex Documents where they don’t exist and Reports used throughout the procurement cycle.

Assessments

Procurement Planning, Implementation, Documentations and Contracts Management

We assess adequacy of procurement systems in as far as procurement planning, implementation and monitoring and documentation are concerned.

Procurement being the heart of an organisation, managing cross functional roles and cutting across every department, it is very essential that the responsible team be equipped on how to optimally handle the process at every level.

Pre-Qualification of Suppliers

Pre-qualification is a part of Market Research whereby suppliers of particular goods, services or works are assessed against pre-determined qualification criteria, and only those suppliers who comply with the criteria are invited to tender. A pre-qualification of suppliers will ensure that bids are only received from suppliers which are able to comply with the Organization’s requirements.

We shall handle this process for you so you can concentrate on your core value.

Why Do it for You

  • Saves time spent on non-core objectives
  • The complexity of the procurement
  • The available staff may not be knowledgeable or equipped enough.

Our duty here will be to work closely with your procurement/purchasing department based on the procurement plan and the purchasing requisitions raised to come up with a pre-qualification notice on the most recommended media preferably Newspapers stipulating the different categories to pre-qualify for and the necessary requirements, and then;

  • Bid receiving
  • Bid evaluation and
  • Making ready the final list of the best bidders
  • Writing reports to different parties .i.e. Procurement, Management/Board

Procurement Outsourcing

Today companies are faced with increasing pressures to cut costs and maximize efficiencies in their business processes or activities that are non-core or peripheral to organisational scope. Organisations are therefore looking for innovative ways to get work done more efficiently at lower costs through Business Process Outsourcing.

Procurement is a prime area for business process outsourcing. While it can contribute to the strategic objectives of a firm, Procurement is a non-core function in most corporate companies with the need to minimise impact on profitability while maintaining service levels and compliance. More so it is also a cost centre and not a profit centre; not to mention its rather complex and time consuming nature.

Companies are now considering procurement outsourcing rather than build in-house procurement capabilities to take advantage of latest procurement strategies, expertise, market leverage, flexibility and efficiency without affecting their bottom line and service levels.

Legacy Logistics provides Procurement outsourcing services that are flexible and custom configured to meet your specific needs. We provide a range of solutions from end-to-end procurement outsourcing to point solutions like category management, vendor management, prequalification, supplier audits, negotiations, contract/order management, spend analysis, sourcing support, tracking & compliance.

Some of the benefits that you can gain from Procurement outsourcing include:

  • Cost reduction from headcount, training, office space and computerization
  • Market leverage allowing for better discounts
  • Marketing knowledge of which suppliers are best for various product categories
  • Better management information and purchasing analysis.
  • Negotiation by an expert in the field is often more effective and profitable.
  • Save time and resources which allows the organization to focus on other areas that increase value and strategic focus.
