Indirect Procurement Special Interest Group

This Special Interest Group completed in February 2022. Its purpose was to take away insights and actionable ideas for improving the management of your company's indirect procurement spend.

The Indirect Procurement Special Interest Group focused on common challenges and opportunities for improving processes and reducing costs in the area of indirect procurement. The objectives of the group were:

  • To provide a forum for participating UWEBC member companies to discuss topics of interest related to defining and implementing strategies for managing their spend on indirect goods and services;
  • To learn about leading practices, strategies, and processes through interactive discussion and comparison of approaches with peers at other companies;
  • To enable participating companies to leverage leading practices to optimize their indirect spend.
Participation in the Indirect Procurement SIG was reserved for directors, managers and practitioners with responsibility within the procurement process with exposure to indirect spend at companies actively employing strategic sourcing principles and practices to optimize and deliver value in the management of indirect goods and services categories.
