CIPS 9 June 2014

The Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS) has partnered with The Beijing Axis (TBA) to strengthen and support the procurement and supply profession in mainland China and Hong Kong.

The Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS) has partnered with The Beijing Axis (TBA) to strengthen and support the procurement and supply profession in mainland China and Hong Kong.

The Beijing Axis has extensive experience in servicing the procurement needs of multinational companies and established platform and networks in China and Asia. CIPS expertise lies in developing the procurement and supply management profession through specially-designed training, qualifications, products and services. The combined team will have the ability to better serve the mainland China and Hong Kong markets through a focused programme that synthesises global best practices with local delivery.

Established in 1932, CIPS is the dynamic champion driving the global procurement and supply management profession and promotes licensing the profession, which encourages the advancement of best practice in the profession. As the world’s largest institute of its kind, CIPS was awarded a Royal Charter in 1992 and is a not-for-profit body with offices in the UK, Africa, Australia, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), and Singapore, while expanding its presence in China. CIPS clients include China Light & Power (CLP), Caterpillar and American Express.

The Beijing Axis is a leading, China-focused global procurement house that offers a comprehensive range of intelligent global sourcing solutions across the supply chain that balances total cost, delivery time and quality, while minimising risk. With more than 11 years of delivering procurement solutions for international companies, TBA’s clients include global mining, energy, manufacturing, construction, engineering, technology, insurance, FMCG, and retail companies.

CIPS has worked in the region for over 10 years with its education partner, China Communications and Transportation Association (CCTA), and has recently signed a new contract for five years, delivering its own qualifications in English and Mandarin. CIPS has also developed two degree programmes in conjunction with the National Education Examinations Authority (NEEA) and CCTA which are available entirely in Mandarin across China.

David Noble, Group CEO, CIPS, said of the partnership: “China and Hong Kong play a significant role in the development of the global economy, and China is a prominent power in the East.”

“We have already developed strong relationships with CIPS members in the region and with the education authority but would like to do more. This partnership will cement the goodwill and activity already undertaken by CIPS and strengthen procurement and supply management throughout the business community.”

“The partnership with CIPS comes at an opportune time when training and certification in the procurement and supply sector is gaining ground in mainland China and Hong Kong,” explains Kobus van der Wath, Founder and Group Managing Director of The Beijing Axis. “CIPS high-level training and certification offerings complement our comprehensive and practical global procurement and supply chain outsourced services.”

TBA will initially offer CIPS corporate award and certification targeting businesses and public sector organisations, and will be present at a number of events in the next few months. David Noble will be visiting China in July 2014 to formally launch the partnership and jointly meet branch members, partners and industry players with The Beijing Axis.
