Assuming that you have already decided on what your company truly needs, you have to ensure that you get as much as possible for your money. So how can you take advantage of every coin you spend? This is when your specialists in the acquisition department step in.
How harmful a deficient acquisition department can be
All the expenses not mentioned on the bills must go through the acquisition centre, where people are supposed to find alternative sources of resources. It sounds good, right? They should also negotiate the best contracts, whether it comes to price tags or deadlines. But is this always happening within your company?
Sometimes, it might be frustrating to find out that your department has negotiated every coin and price tag for the ultimate equipments and technologies, only to find out that you have just spent a fortune for it. Plus, you may not even need those things, especially without any competitive estimates. What about the deadlines? Most amateurs or self called professional focus on the price tags only.
In order to ensure a proper result, I suggest keeping in touch with the acquisition department. There is just no better way to obtain the best offer for your budget.
