A C C E S S

Accessibility:          Enhanced customer service by adding more self serve features

Controls:                Adequate controls and approval processes are in place

Contracts:              Negotiated better pricing using tools that ensure contracted pricing                                 is applied to all Western purchases with increased visibility into                                our spend for procurement

Efficient:                More efficient tools to allow staff and researchers to spend less time                               on procurement related activities

Savings:                Cost savings that will go back to the individual research projects                               and departments at Western

Savings

  • Conservative savings estimates growing annually for both operations and research
  • This solution is centrally funded, there is no cost being passed on to the departments
  • All savings are based on hard dollars, there are no soft savings included
  • Increased visibility into our spend will allow Procurement Services to negotiate better pricing, and ultimately more savings for Western
  • Any savings realized by Western will go back to the departments
