Strategic Procurement

By definition, Strategic Procurement is the management process that ensures procurement is in line with the overall corporate strategy, and is focused on long term in-depth planning and management of the procurement strategy and functionality.

Tactical Purchasing

By definition, Purchasing is the routine tactical (day to day operational) activities associated with procuring quality materiel, products and services for the organisation, and ensuring the associated administrative management activities such as delivery, expediting, compliance and payment activities are managed effectively and efficiently.

Human Capital Development

To most dynamic Procurement executives, Human Capital and Procurement have become increasingly interdependent due to the fact that the greatest cost in real terms of financial and operational performance is effective human capital.

Interim & Contract

Furrutter & Associates (Procurement) offers short and medium term Procurement resource solutions to clients that require interim management or Contingency Staffing resources. The greatest benefit of using such resources is to service targeted, unique, discreet or sensitive situations whereby a permanent role-player maybe non-advantageous, unnecessary or impossible to source at short notice or to fill extra capacity staffing needs or sudden gaps and departures.
