Procurement outsourcing is an increasingly important part of global strategy within many organisations today and it is moving beyond its traditional borders of cost and spend reduction.  Services have grown beyond the more transactional purchase to pay elements of the value chain, to one where more strategic processes are being outsourced such as sourcing, risk management, spend analytics, procurement technology and supply chain innovation.  In addition to this, world class category expertise, supplier performance and relationship management and contract management are also becoming distinguishing characteristics of leading procurement businesses.
