Procurement Help Desk & On-Demand Support
It doesn’t always make sense to hire a strategic sourcing category expert or procurement professional for every single aspect of your corporate spend. The return on investment for hiring and retaining talented multi-disciplined procurement professionals also can have a diminishing return once you move past your top supplier contracts or top spend categories. But traditional consultants from the big firms charge way too much money and often require minimum guarantees of work that far exceed what hiring an extra procurement person or two would cost anyhow. And in some cases, the procurement support they provide is too generic and doesn’t provide the depth of category or sourcing expertise that you are looking for.
But now, Source One has the answer to your dilemma. With our sourcing and procurement retainer services, you have access to the right procurement team, with the right procurement experience – when you need them, as you need them; regardless of the type of procurement project you are tackling.

We then build a discounted pre-paid support package under a retainer agreement. As your team needs sourcing or procurement help, they simply call us or initiate a ticket to get support from any one of our experts in any spend category or procurement capacity. We allow some rollover hours too, so you can bank this months’ time to tackle a larger procurement initiative next month.
