we help business owners to find lost profits in procurement and supply chain

We work across various industries to support companies of different sizes who want to make their procurement clear and transparent.

Get to Know 6 Signs of Ineffective Procurement
1. You have few new suppliers. The same companies pariticipate in tenders every year.

2. The company has no clear procurement policies and regulations. Departments have their own rules, limitations and work flows.

3. The procurement function is manually managed. There exist some policies, but in fact everything works some other way.

4. The department (for example, production) is responsible for every set in buying: sets a request for a purchase, selects suppliers, and confirms the work done.

5. Many unexpected, ad-hoc expenditures. Employees argue that it is impossible to plan in advance in "this environment".

6. Suppliers word of mouth says that it's impossible to set a contract with your company without a bribe. Or the owner / CEO feels that there are loopholes for corruption somewhere in the procurement process.

2020 Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey by PwC shows that every second company faces economic crime.

~ 50% of fraud was committed by internal players: employees or suppliers.

19% is fraud and corruption in procurement.

We, at IPSM, tell you that here you see only registered and proved cases.

Fraud that you DIDN'T DETECT or DON'T WANT TO SEE is just as important as a fraud you find.
