We clearly explain the expert practices in  how you win business and how you select the right suppliers  through a formal bid and tendering process .

With more and more corporations opting for "preferred supplier" lists, bids and tenders have become a fact of business life.

For the small or medium sized corporation without a specialist bids-and-tenders team, bid preparation can take great amounts of senior management time. Here's where this course  comes in: practical and written in an accessible style, it uses examples to explain how to create bids that are outstanding in technical quality and value for money, and that stand a chance of being successful. We provide "best-practice" advice on every step in the process, including: bidding for r contracts; analysing requirements; managing bids; resourcing and researching the bid; developing the bid; defining outputs and deliverables; communicating added value; describing professional experience; producing and submitting tenders; stating the costs; understanding tender evaluation; and making presentations.

When a company decides to purchase goods and services from suppliers they follow set stages and consult with many decision makers  .

This Smart bid process reduces costs  , avoids mistakes and selects the best suppliers to do business with  at the best price . The smart bid process also gives sales teams  best practice advice to follow ensuring selection and award of vendors will be a perfect fit for your business .

Cloud computing represents a fundamental shift in the way that organizations operate business systems and digital services. The nature of running software workloads in the Cloud, with on-demand resources, pay-as-you-go pricing and security and compliance requirements make Cloud Acquisition processes very different from traditional IT procurement models. This course provides an overview of the differences, illuminates the procurement process and its key aspects, the role of key stakeholders in the organization (legal, budget/finance, security, IT, and business leadership) and how to go about planning change management with the digital transformation enabled by the cloud. It explains common pitfalls and best practices, strategies for successful cloud adoption including how to work with cloud providers, and their partners such as the APN, management and governance and success evaluation in procurement and deployment.

As companies and governments leverage the cloud to migrate their workloads or build in the cloud natively, having a good strategy for cloud acquisition is key for organizations to start and maintain their digital transformation. Organizations in the public and private sector have expressed their frustration at the lack of a standardized process and skills for cloud acquisition, compared to traditional IT procurement. This has led to unrealized benefits from moving to the cloud, constrained deployments and wasted time for organizations.

Procurement to Payment can be a significant workflow in any business. For the workflow to work effectively, each team involved; Procurement; Sourcing and Purchasing, Receiving, Vendor Master, Accounts Payable and Payment Processing and Treasury should have an understanding of the entire flow. 

In this presentation, we will review the basics of Procurement. In most businesses, nothing can be ordered until a supplier has been set up in the Vendor Master Maintenance system. The words Sourcing and Purchasing may be interchangeable or have different meanings in your organization.

The receiving of goods and services and the Posting of Goods Receipts against Purchase Orders can be more critical in some businesses than the processing of invoices. Auditing of aged receipts will also be covered.

Return of product to a supplier also needs to be tracked in order to ensure recovery of funds or receipt of replacement product.  We will explore some options on how that can be done in your organization.

Although Accounts Payable is toward the end of the work stream, their role is no less critical.  They need to ensure costs are posted promptly and accurately, that payments are made timely and that vendor relations are not negatively impacted while complying with best business practices; Compliance Policies, Segregation of Duties, Delegation of Authority, tax liabilities and other business specific rules.
