Procurement Activity Plan
The Procurement team at Cenitex manages all buying activity in alignment with its Transactional / Leveraged / Focused capability profile, through the assessment of complexity across procurement categories and sub-categories.
To get the best value for money for ourselves and our customers, Cenitex leverages economies of scale, as well as a strategic governance framework that includes category plans, supplier management plans, annual budget allocations and Cenitex business and strategic plans.
Cenitex’s annual Procurement Activity Plan is prepared as per the Victorian Government Purchasing Board’s policy framework to aid and inform our suppliers. By helping suppliers prepare for forward demand, they can participate in market engagements more effectively, resulting in healthy, competitive markets that contribute to delivering value for money.
This table represents Cenitex’s Procurement Activity Plan for the period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020. The plan will be reviewed annually and updated as required.
