1. Rushed procurement
There is never enough time to meet rising demands. Public sector workers will know all about the rush to achieve targets, up against time-consuming factors such as spending profiles and approvals.
2. Expensive fees
Conducting a tender process is very expensive and time consuming. There are fees to develop the documentation, plus procurement companies want to take a percentage of contracts to complete the process.
3. Failed procurement
Procurements fail due to changing requirements, and a lack of tenders from appropriately qualified suppliers. It costs time and money having to begin again.
