  • Review purchase requisitions and create purchase orders, ensuring accuracy and completeness of information.
  • Monitor and control procurement costs to optimize spending and achieve budgetary targets.
  • Identify and execute on opportunities for cost savings through supplier consolidation, negotiation, and process improvement initiatives.
  • Track and report on key procurement metrics, such as cost savings, supplier performance, and inventory levels, to support decision-making and strategic planning.
  • Identify and evaluate potential suppliers based on factors such as price, quality, reliability, and delivery capabilities.


  • Establish and improve systems to encompass the intake to procure process with a focus on user adoption and thoughtful orchestration of each workflow stage.
  • Ensure compliance with relevant regulations, laws, and company policies governing procurement activities.
  • Familiarity with TPRM and GRC program standards to conduct risk assessments of suppliers and supply chain processes resulting in proactive risk mitigation.  
  • Implement measures to enhance procurement security, such as supplier diversity initiatives and supply chain transparency efforts. 


  • Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, Supply Chain Management, or a related field. Master's degree preferred.
  • At least 5 years of experience in procurement, purchasing, or supply chain management, with a strong understanding of procurement processes and best practices.
  • Proven negotiation skills and the ability to build and maintain relationships with suppliers and internal stakeholders.
  • Proficiency in procurement software and tools, as well as Microsoft Office Suite (Excel, Word, PowerPoint).
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills, with the ability to analyze data, identify trends, and make data-driven decisions.
