Utility provider leading the industry whilst generating 10% savings p.a.

A utility provider was undergoing a significant transformation to become recognised as a leading utility. The procurement function had been identified as a priority candidate for review and transformation. The utility sought external expertise to conduct the review and identify a pathway for improvement.

Savings of more than 10% savings discovered through spend, category and inventory analysis

Grosvenor was engaged to conduct an organisational wide inventory, spend and category analysis, and to conduct a review of the entire procurement function to identify savings and efficiencies, and to provide a model and implementation plan for the future delivery of procurement for a large mixed utility provider.

Injured procurement function revived with a multifaceted refresh and implementation

Grosvenor conducted a comprehensive review of the client's procurement function. The review involved extensive consultation across the business, review of existing process and procedures and an assessment of procurement outcomes. Current practice was assessed against Grosvenor’s Procurement Better Practice Comparator to identify areas of strength as well as areas requiring improvement.
