Merger motto: "be prepared"

21 June 2007

This issue our experts were posed with the question, “My company is about to merge with another. What should the procurement department do in preparation?”

• Assess the profile of spend across all categories.

• Ensure your department’s profile and reputation are solid and decision makers understand the value procurement brings.

• Research the company you are merging with to understand their business and organisational structure.
