The best businesses and organisations buy well because good customers always attract the best suppliers and deals in the marketplace.
Clarity: Clearly state what you want, understand what it is worth and how and where to buy it, and you will get great value.
Specify: Clearly specify your requirements to ensure that the suppliers can make a reliable offer and contract negotiations are straight-forward.
Relationships: With the right suppliers on board at the right price, contract administration is straight-forward; suppliers will naturally seek to improve their products, services and prices to maintain long term relationships.
