Tail Spend Management

The Challenge

The “tail” end of a procurement department’s spend refers to the 20% of noncore transactions that go unmanaged, usually due to a high volume of suppliers and limited in-house resources dedicated to managing them.  In fact, many of these transactions are either too small or made too infrequently to be handled by internal strategic sourcing staff.  Effectively managing the tail spend remains both a great challenge and opportunity for many procurement departments.  Improved process efficiency and better allocation of time and resources for tail spend can result in significant cost savings and increased ROI for the company as a whole.
