Managing your supply chain risks through effective and efficient Procurement practices, especially in the current economic environment, across your business is vital.
At Management Options, our team of highly experienced procurement consultants are service providers who deliver tailored procurement support and consultancy for government and semi-government clients.
The following short video provides an insight into our services:
Our background in governance and probity ensure we understand the policies and legislative framework our public sector clients are required to work within. Management Options assists organisations in navigating and adapting to these frameworks to optimise their organisational agility. After all, procuring smarter within an organisation adds value well beyond the traditional bottom line.
Often our client’s procurement requirements fall into one of our service streams, depending on where they are in the Procurement – Contract Management Cycle.
Our approach helps organisations procure smarter by understanding their spend profile in order to make informed purchasing decisions. This includes, what they buy when they buy and who they buy from.
Management Options has the capability to support our clients through all stages of the cycle or we’ll work with our client’s team or other consultants to complete work packages and handover activities for the next stage.
Whether you require end to end or partial procurement support services, our team can help.
We have an excellent track record of embedding our experienced procurement specialists as procurement leads in major projects that require on-site (as well as remote) full, or part-time presence.

Procurement and Governance
At Management Options, procurement governance structures are effective, efficient and compliant with legislative requirements. Through collaboration, we conduct governance reviews that take into account your legal structure, regulatory environment, organisational vision and culture.
Reviews can either address particular issues of concern within your organisation, including systems and processes, or a broader review that takes in all components within the procurement ecosystem.
Why Choose Us?
The true value of procurement to an organisation cannot be under-estimated.
Procurement’s focus on delivering high quality lower cost solutions is a natural sales asset. In other words, by understanding our customer’s needs, procurement can deliberately focus on ensuring that the customer gets what they want at the right time, the right quality and the right price.
It is often the case that procurement consultants will say something like, “just leave the Terms and Conditions to us because we are the procurement experts, and you just write the scope of work”. At Management Options, we recognise that the discussion needs to go beyond this concept.
We understand that the true scope of procurement requires a connection between commercial and technical interests.
We understand the actual needs, commercial risks, performance requirements, supplier capabilities and the depth of supplier value to your internal customer.
A customer team that is innovative with access to new products and a wide range of commercial skills, creates an invaluable supply chain and supplier relationships. These relationships can deliver tangible value to your bottom line.
For this reason, it is essential to become deeply involved in both the requirement as well as the process to ensure that there is a clear fit commercially between what is being offered by the supplier and what is delivered to your internal customer.
Procurement must become the fulcrum that engenders trust and respect by both internal customers as well as the supplier.
As trusted advisors, Management Options is a team that clients can rely on to deliver sound commercial and technical solutions.
Our approach ensures your organisation can activate those key supplier relationships that are critical to your success.
Many organisations are not aware that by becoming a preferred customer of choice, their top suppliers will naturally give them preferential benefits. These benefits may assist in better pricing or deliver process or productivity improvements.
For this reason, organisations should take a positive view of their top suppliers and actively and routinely engage with them. Management Options can assess your supplier relationships and advise on the best strategies moving forward.
Management Options encourages a collaborative SRM process by activating key supplier relationships. By stepping outside the box, organisations can identify and target the dollar savings as well as other competitive value-adding opportunities.
Supply chain vulnerability occurs with poor planning and a failure to collaborate or select the wrong suppliers. Many organisations experience increases in supply disruption on a regular basis, and this adversely affects their business.
At Management Options, procurement has a critical role in seeking out suppliers that have both capacity and capability to support your business, to ensure that the ensuing commercial relationships assist with the delivery of goods and services effectively and on time.
This is significant, as delays in receiving goods and services, has a flow-on effect. While procurement is often called to resolve disrupted supply chains, it is far more critical that the procurement team focuses on prevention.
After all, prevention is better than cure! At Management Options we identify and manage supply risk by engaging in effective and efficient sourcing strategies.
Smart companies with a strategic procurement team like Management Options, know that real value is creating efficient and cost-effective supply chains. We can assist with the right supplier providing the right quality at the right price and the right time. This is the road to success!
Management Options will work to identify the most beneficial areas to focus on, in terms of both upfront value and long-term efficiency and cost savings.
