Buying from SME’s today – the key considerations (VIRTUAL)

March 20, 2020

Increasingly we seem to be sourcing from smaller suppliers – SME’s. 

Federal commonwealth buyers, some state govt buyers and many local councils have regulated BUY LOCAL policies. Other drivers like indigenous procurement policy, community focussed support, anti-slavery considerations and reduced supply-chain risk also tend us towards smaller suppliers – even as we outsource ever more of our business operations.  

Yet, to what extent do we make allowances for SME suppliers to give us their best possible support? Compared to large corporate behemoth suppliers? Do they have to comply the same? Should they? Can they be as transparent? 

As professional procurement managers what should we be doing to enable better supplier performance and more secure supply lines from SME suppliers?
